Mead is honey wine. Wine made from honey. Honey created from nectar collected by generations of incredibly industrious bees. Blended with water from ancient aquifers…a pinch of magic….and matured with the patience of Mother Nature.

It predates medieval monks or knights, rambunctious royalty, and even Game of Thrones. Its story begins in the mists of time, interwoven with human evolution across far-flung lands. Our honey wine is made in New Zealand, Aotearoa, land of the long white cloud. This green and verdant land….

Mead, once used in the most sacred of ceremonies, now comes to you for you to share in celebrating your precious moments.

Mead just for you.

Celebrating life with Joy Mead



To support our beautiful bees

while stocks last every order will include a complimentary pack of wild flower seeds for you to grow in your garden, a pot, a window box…or give to a green fingered friend!

Sorry but we are out of stock of seeds at present.

Additional packs of seeds will be available for purchase from the shop when new stock arrives.

Medium/dry mead with subtle honey flavours that are not overpowering and are supported by gentle acidity. Perfectly balanced and not at all cloying – it’s the sort of beverage that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with slightly (but not overtly) sweet dishes. A great first release!
