With the rebirth of craft beer, the nation has bone hop troppo.
Honeycone is mead for the terminally beer-struck, adding the familiar herbaceous notes of hops to a smooth, semi-sweet sparkling mead.
Beehave Meadery is located a prudent distance from Taupo, overlooking the Great Lake’s northern bays. Owners Jay and Jane Bennett combine mead-making with running a small farm and wearing themselves out mountain biking.
Naughty humans have been fermenting honey and turning it into mead for 8,000 years give or take. At Beehave Meadery we’re using this ancient indulgence as a launching pad for the exploration of flavour.
Surrounded by a DOC bush reserve, the bees in our hives have access to a walk-up buffet of native flora. Each seasonal flowering of Rewarewa, Five Finger or Kamahi results in a honey of unique character.
In the Meadery, that honey becomes the starting point of Beehave. By recklessly experimenting with natural ingredients, we’ve created a range of new wave meads that cram in as much personality as discretion allows.
Beehave however you fancy.
