This is our subscription service for all our small batch meads in cans, alongside lots of exclusive content.
Over the past 2 years, we've had amazing success with our single honey meads. This is where we've taken a special honey and made a special mead from it. The honey either come from a single hive, a single beekeeper, or a monofloral honey.
These have been amazingly popular with all of you and we regularly sell out as quickly as we can make it!
This year, we've had great fun experimenting with more small-batch flavours. These all use unique and exciting recipes and yeasts to really push forward what we can do with honey.
So, now we want to build on this, taking what we've learnt and making it more accessible by moving from big bottles to cans.
