The bees are back in town as honey wine, believed to be the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage, becomes a fresh late-summer sipper. Bløm, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, ferments a wildflower-honey and apple-cider blend, served on tap, while Quebec’s Desrochers D, of Ferme-Neuve, draws inspiration from beer by dry-hopping mead for their crisp and fizzy Beezz IP made from raw buckwheat honey. Island Honey Wine Company in Wheatley River, PEI, joins the hive with a bold and tart variety infused with local haskap berries. And Moonshine Meadery in Pune, India (the country’s first honey-wine producer), is setting the mead scene abuzz by adding Karnataka coffee to the mix.
