Museum Saturday Mead tasting with Cape Town Meadery

At the Cape Town Meadery, they take inspiration from the past whilst looking to the future. They aim to create a permanent space for Africa’s traditional celebration drink in its ancestral home, and believe the quality and unique flavours of pure African honey will speak for themselves. Water, honey, osmotolerant yeast, time and viola – a mead (or !Karri) was born. Early African bushmen and tribes from 20,000 years ago, gathered not only honey but also mead, and as successive waves of people left Africa, they took with them some knowledge of mead and mead making.

Cape Town Meadery refuse to use anything other than the finest organic honey, and never adulterate it with artificial additives or preservatives. They are uncompromising in their commitment to the natural flavours, so all they add to their honey is pure water, and champagne yeast.

Join us to discover why mead is in a category of its own. With the elegance of a fine wine but the creativity of a craft beer, taste the different varieties, ranging from flagship MCC to Pale Ale Braggot.
