The Celts believed that drinking mead would bring them immortality

In many Celtic traditions, mead, an alcoholic beverage made from fermented honey, water and yeast, plays an important role. This drink was associated with royalty and deities, and it was supposed to bring immortality. And that led the Celts to pass a law protecting bees.

With the development of trade between Celtic populations and the Mediterranean world, wine became more easily accessible and began to replace mead.
