“Bee not what you expect”….
What is Mead?
Mead is an alcoholic honey beverage. Mead is unique in that it stands alone within its own category of alcoholic beverages; it’s not wine, it’s not beer and it’s not cider. Produced from 100% Australian honey, the Beechworth Honey Mead is a fun, refreshing and unexpected drinking experience.
How is it made?
Mead is made when honey is diluted with water and allowed to ferment. Fermentation is then stopped to retain the sweetness. With multiple fermentations we build more complexity and flavour. Mead can take between 3 months and 5 years or more to make depending on its style. Mead is Gluten Free – it does not contain wheat or grain based yeasts.
What does it taste like?
The perception of mead is that it will taste very sweet or spicy. However Beechworth Honey Mead is not what you expect it to BEE! It’s a much subtler and more refined flavour that breaks from tradition.
Use our “Dry to Sweet” bee scale on our bottle to choose the Mead that’s right for you!
