From a time where myth & legend ruled, Mead lays claim to being civilisation’s first venture into the world of alcoholic beverages. Drink of choice during the reign of Ancient Greece, the experience of sipping Mead was believed to have been an enlightening one, giving scholar- & poet-like characteristics to whoever lips it touched.
The history of Mead dates back at least 20,000 years and has its origins on the African continent. During the dry season feral bees, with legs covered in wild yeasts, would build hives in hollows of Baobab trees, where the elephant had broken branches. During the wet season the hollows would fill with water and dilute the honey to a level that the wild yeast could ferment the honey/water solution into mead.
Offering all the goodness of six teaspoons of honey per litre, this sparkling mead is crafted by fermenting a blend of Manuka & Australian Clover honey with pure High Country spring water.
Delicate honey and floral aromas perfectly balanced with medium honey sweetness and fine sparkles on the palate with a dry, citrus-like finish.
