We believe in SUSTAINABILITY. We want future generations to live in an environment that’s healthier, more productive, more beautiful and finally less degrading than the one we currently live in. We believe in the idea of COMMUNITY. We strive to source ingredients, products and equipment from local producers and manufactures in the community. We believe that supporting the local community is paramount to being part OF the community.

We believe in always using 100% real fruits, no additives, flavours, adjuncts or extracts. No sulphites of preservatives either! We endeavour to source honey from the local region and always 100% Australian raw, untreated honey. We believe in forming relationships with our beekeepers and local produces to allow them to produce the highest quality ingredients for our meads. We believe that our country has some of the finest and most unique indigenous ingredients anywhere on Earth. We believe in showcasing our country and paying homage to our countries ancestors by highlighting these ingredients.

We do all of this for our environment and our community.

We believe in making the best possible meads we can. We believe in grinding, in experimenting, in fine tuning every aspect of our meadery. We believe in producing meads that are unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. Meads that excite your sensors, that are delightful, tantalising and refreshing. Meads that can be drunk anytime of the year. We believe in being different, drinking differently.

Drink mead.

What do you believe?

 

 

Where have we been?
Are you still making mead?
Why haven't we heard from you in awhile?

Good questions dear people, which we are about to answer.

Firstly, we know it's difficult to support a business which doesn't support the community. We haven't left the community, in-fact quite the opposite.

Our mead maker Joel Robinson suffered a brain injury in May this year and has been off the tools ever since. He's spent some time in hospital and is suffering a bunch of residual effects that are making it extremely difficult for him to make mead in his present state. The main condition that is debilitating for Joel is a very rare condition known as Parosmia for which there is no cure.

It's a very long road, we need to take a moment to stay strong as a family and small business and support him during this very difficult time. If you'd like a brief explanation of what parosmia is and what it's like to live with, we recommend checking out this blog entry.

Will continue to update in the near future. Thank you for your support.

James LoweryLooks more like AAB than LAB. You need to measure your VA to make sure you aren't over the legal limit.
