Encyclopedia > Chouchen

Chouchen is an alcoholic drink popular in Brittany. It is made from the fermentation of honey in water. A 7 proof drink, it is comparable to mead.


Chouchen is drunk cool, generally as an aperitif. There are different kinds of chouchen in Brittany, some of which are prepared with a mixture of seawater as well as fresh water and honey.


Formerly the effects of chouchen were very violent, probably due to the impurities in the honey used. Bees themselves were sometimes present in the honey mixture. Chouchen could also have a soporific effect. This is no longer the case today.
