hist-brewing: Blue mead

I never like to bring up options that are ultimately impossible to
implement, but a bit of searching came up with this natural blue food
coloring made from spirulina (blue-green algae) of all things.  It is called
Linablue and it is manufactured in Japan.  Here is the link to the specific
page on the manufacturer's website:

It is possible that this could be purchased by a helpful contact in Japan
and shipped to the meadmaker that wanted it.  There is also the distinct
chance that with a kind email to the manufacturer a small free sample could
be procured.  You'd be surprised what you can get sometimes just for asking.

Certainly not a historical solution to this dilemma, but would definitely
add an interesting storyline to a Romulan Ale.
