A global-spanning phenomenon created by fermenting honey with water, mead is one of humanity’s earliest-recorded alcoholic concoctions. It’s probably what kept hordes like the Vikings on the road (or in their case, in the boat). Coromandel residents Paul and Angela Moresby operate NZ’s only organic beekeeping business producing certified organic active Manuka honey. That same honey goes into their Sting mead. Yep. Got to be good for you.
