Metheglin, the fermented liquor made of honeyed liquid, is obtained by thoroughly washing the "comb" when drained of the honey with fresh strong beer to hasten the fermentation. Sloes, quice and ginger are added along with freshly ground nutmegs.
Metheglin, when well made, and refined and matured by age (6 to 9 months), is a "cordial" of no mean order - a homely "liqueur" of potent quality.
