Our Mead is made in the traditional methods of old, by synergizing the ways of old with the modern advancements in yeast cultivations we have perfected our meads.

 

What is Mead?

 

Mead is not a beer, wine, or spirit in the normal sense; it is its own class of alcohol, and it is believed to be the oldest alcoholic beverage.

 

Mead has held a pivotal place in many cultures throughout its nearly 8,000 year history, and it is still enjoyed throughout the world.

 

Mead is the result of fermentation under certain conditions. The correct amount of Water mixed with Honey and Yeast would yield a fermented drink, the alcohol is created by utilizing natural sugars found in the Organic Raw Honey, adding some our secrete ingredients to enhance the natural process.

 

Using Organic Raw Honey and selected waters and fruits from around Mpumalanga we have created something special.

 

How it all Began....

 

Our inherent constant need for knowledge about the way of the Vikings led us on a truly bizarre question. How does mead taste?

 

We had no way of find out. So we decided to use our homesteading skills to produce or at least try and make something like mead.

 

We collected a vast amount of knowledge from books and some site. but we did not go their way... We added the magic of old, tradition forged with the intent of making the brewing spirits proud. The very first meads that we made were a Dragons Blood and a rose infused Rooibos Meads. Both a success but they were not the ones we know today. Dragons blood has gone through a few transformations and we are extremely happy with our latest batch.
