​Mead is sunlight collected by flowers transformed into nectar, gathered by bees, and turned into honey that is added to water and yeast. There are over 600000 flowers in one 750 bottle, honey bees will have travelled the equivalent of three orbits of the earth in distance to collect it.

Historically mead was a global beverage: consumed by the Ancient Greeks 800 bc – 500 bc, Vikings 800 ac, and African bushmen. In fact, mead was drunkbefore men knew how to harness the meadmaking process; mead fermented naturally on its own when a beehive combined with rainwater and wild yeast in the air.

The ancient Greeks used mead to honor the goddesses Aphrodite and Artemis, while also being consumed by prophets of the time in order to see visions of the future. The vikings considered mead the drink of warriors that was delivered to them by a beautiful maiden once they reached Valhalla, a vast hall inhabited by the gods reserved for those who died in battle. The term ‘honeymoon’ can be traced to the medieval tradition of drinking mead for a full cycle of the moon after marriage. Mead was thought to be an aphrodisiac, and if consumed by newlyweds, offspring would soon follow.

A taste of mead tells stories and fables of flowers and the bees travel across the land.

Drinking mead supports our precious pollinating bees and the ecological balance they keep.
