Maine Mead Works
Maine Mead Works was founded in 2007 with the goal of re-introducing the world to the oldest of all fermented beverages. Using wildflower honey, water and our own proprietary yeast strain, we blend ancient tradition and modern science to produce distinctive wines at our Meadery in downtown Portland, Maine.
In collaboration with South African scholar Dr. Garth Cambray, Maine Mead Works developed a state-of-the-art continuous fermentation system, bringing mead making into the 21st century. HoneyMaker, a decidedly modern mead — crisp, dry and refreshing — is the result.
A Sense of Place
Ultimately, Maine Mead Works is about Maine — the fields, forests and flowers that make HoneyMaker great. Today, the company that began as an experiment in sustainability has grown into a foodie favorite at the forefront of the local, artisanal movement.
Ingredients ranging from low-bush Maine blueberries to English lavender are sourced locally. Every bottle of HoneyMaker mead supports family farms, encourages apiculture and enhances biodiversity.
