If you enjoy wine, mead or honey wine is a must try!  It is an alcoholic drink made by the fermentation of honey. It is the oldest known alcoholic beverage.  Honey itself has a lot of health benefits.

In a nutshell, honey is

-high in antioxidants
-antibacterial (so it’s good for wounds and burns)
-beneficial for heart health as it lowers triglycerides and the bad cholesterol (LDL)
-used as a cough suppressant

Honey wine can be sweet or dry and there are a few vareties:

MEAD – this is the purest form of honey wine itself fermented with just honey and water
PYMENT – it is made from fermentation of grapes and honey
MELOMEL – fermentation with a blend of fruit and honey
METHEGLIN – traditional mead with herbs/spices added such as cinnamon
CYSOR – fermentation with a blend of honey and apple juice/cider

If you are unsure which one you like better, don’t worry as they offer wine tasting at a fair price!

Mead for some reason is pretty rare so I was very excited to visit this local honey farm! This place is going to be a dream come true if you are obsessed with anything honey or bees. Besides wine, they carry honey, candles, personal or healing products, arts and crafts as well as bee stock and equipment. All items of course are derived from bees’ extracts.

Do you know that honey tastes differently if the nectar is collected from a different type of flower? Surprisingly, honey has many different flavors.

Here’s a list of their personal care products if interested 🙂

They provide high quality products at a fraction of the price. Unfortunately they do not offer shipping on their products yet but if you are in the greater Vancouver area, put this onto your must-visit place this summer! They are located at 2595 Lefeuvre Road in Abbotsford BC.

This post was in collaboration with Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm + Meadery. As always, my opinions are my own and honest.
