Honey has been part of the mead making process going back as far as 20,000 years BC. While the processes have changed, pure raw honey remains one of the key ingredients in mead production.

When selecting honey for your mead production, choosing the right flavour will help to ensure success.

Find the best honey variety for your mead

Selecting the right variety of honey to add to your mead will ensure that the unique flavour profile and sweetness level of your mead is guaranteed. Determine the type of mead you are wanting to produce and select the honey that has the colour and flavour profile to compliment the batch.

The popular flavour profiles of our honey for making mead include:


There are no worries about nut allergies. The bees forage on the nectar of the flower. The macadamia honey has a nutty malt flavour and amber colour.


Will add the sweetness while not overpowering the flavour of mead. Ironbark honey has a nice mild flavour and a light amber colour.


Is the genuine all rounder. The colour and flavour of rainforest honey are well balanced and won’t overpower the batch.

Tea Tree

Is full of flavour and colour. The robust flavour of Tea Tree honey will give the mead a boost.


Will add a point of difference to your batch. Manuka Honey’s distinct flavour will be a hit.
