At The Cape Town Meadery our mazers have been hard at work reinvigorating humanity’s oldest beverage. Our products return mead to its ancient roots in Africa, while updating the experience for modern life.
In 2018, after two years of careful research, recipe development, experimental mead making and government applications, Cape Town’s first meadery was ready to reintroduce the world to it’s original celebration beverage. Melaurea, handcrafted in the authentic méthode traditionnelle style, is Africa’s first bottle-fermented mead.
Since the launch of our inaugral MCC, we have experiented with new recipes and styles and have expanded our product range to include traditional-style meads, our !Karri range, and the limited editions in our Reserve range.
