Morat among modern mead makers refers to a mead fermented with mulberries, although the historical beverage was more likely fermented with something like a modern blackberry.

[edit] The History of Morat

Morat is referred to in Walter Scott's Ivanhoe as a traditional drink of the Saxons, made with honey fermented with mulberries. This is the definition most often used by modern mead makers, but it was likely due to a translation error on Scott's part; the Anglo-Saxon word "Morum" is now thought to refer to something like a modern blackberry.
