Honeymoon Meadery was established in 2011 within Planet Bee Honey Farm in picturesque Vernon, British Columbia.
The term Honeymoon references the Norse tradition of consuming Mead for one cycle of the moon following marriage. The father of the bride would supply the newlyweds with enough Mead to satisfy them during this 28-day cycle. Drinking Mead can alter a woman’s bodily PH in such a way that the conception of a son is more likely, something highly prized in the Viking age. This story is the inspiration behind our name, Honeymoon Mead.
All of our Meads are hand-crafted within the walls of our honey farm, Planet Bee. We believe in using natural ingredients, locally-sourced whenever possible, in our wines and strive to bring you unique flavor combinations to enjoy.
