A merry band of mead makers

We are leading the revival of mead making in Southern California. We use high quality (preferably local or organic) honey, the purest natural spring water, various organic fruits, spices, herbs and hops to ferment this magical, healthier alcoholic beverage to light up your life and help regenerate the earth.

CHAPTER I

Tasting 10,000 Flowers

Flowering plants absorb sunshine, soak up water, and convert carbon dioxide to clean oxygen all while transforming this beautiful energy into a sweet secretion called nectar. Plants use nectar to entice bees to their flowers encouraging this beautiful symbiotic pollinating relationship.

 

This process is fundamental for plants to reproduce as well as it is to human life as we know it. The busy bees are hard at work having to visit 10,000 flowers to make enough honey for just one magical sip of our delicious Mead.

 

CHAPTER II

Pollinating the World

Honey bees help produce 1/3 of all the food we eat, helping to pollinate most fruits, nuts, cotton and even coffee. Every morning worker bees search out the sweetest nectar in an effort to spread the love life of plants throughout the world. We are constantly working to improve the well being of all bees, beekeepers, the natural lands, and the organic farmland they work and forage. We want the entire process to act on this similar vibration of love, respect and abundance.

 

Our native pollinators, honey bees and beekeeper’s livelihoods are all in extreme danger.  Mead can directly help the bee population grow, offer more foraging lands, create wider biodiversity and ultimately help the earth thrive.  While making the best alcoholic beverage possible from honey we are transforming the beekeeping industry, restoring the health of our soil, preserving rainforests and reversing climate change. Become apart of this regenerative drinking movement, with every sip you are saving the earth and the bees!

CHAPTER III

The Magical Ingredient

Mead is taking honey to the next level, an alcoholic beverage that is worthy of an offering to the Gods. To make the best meads, we are seeking out the best elements of the best honeys we can find. Much of the honey’s flavor is derived from the plants that the nectar is collected from, it can be fruity, spicy, floral, robust, with notes of toffee and even caramel.  Honey is dynamic and surprising, as a result we are taking our mead making and your mead drinking in wild and unexpected directions. To keep a consistent flavor profile we use a blended honey for our wildflower batches, the rest of our creations will vary year to year, based on the honey the bees produce, making this unique and mythical experience of mead so enjoyable.
