Ray is a Brisbane beekeeper specialising in supplying urban honey from various backyards within Brisbane to local retailers. For about the same amount of time, he’s also been making mead – mostly concentrating on more modern approaches and experimental styles.
You’re going to partake in a ritual that is perhaps as old as civilisation itself; mead making! Mead is one of the oldest alcoholic brewed beverages and it uses honey as the main sugar base. With Raymond, you’ll take a closer look at what Mead is, where it comes from, and brew some yourselves to take home. This isn’t what you might think of – a sickly sweet drink – you’re going to make something that's much lighter and very refreshing. Ages 18+
