I happened to spot this quote in Clara Furness' book _Honey Wines and Beers_

    "The righteous shall be given to drink pure mead sealed with musk."
	            -- The Koran

and was wondering what it meant to seal a mead with musk.  Does anyone one
know what this was, or how it was done?  Thanks in advance!
