Makana Meadery

South Africa

From the heart of South Africa, where ancient traditions meet modern innovation, emerges Makana Meadery, a beacon of mead-making excellence. Makana Meadery is not just a producer of honey wines; it is a testament to the rich history of mead, often considered the world’s oldest fermented beverage.

Makana’s meads are a harmonious blend of indigenous African honey and botanicals, crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Each bottle tells a story of the African landscape, from the floral richness of the Cape fynbos to the tropical lushness of the Limpopo region. Whether it’s the sweet, full-bodied iQhilika African Herbal Blossom Mead or the subtly spiced iQhilika African Birds Eye Chili Mead, each variant offers a unique taste of Africa.

At Makana Meadery, tradition and innovation are intertwined. While the meadery draws inspiration from ancient African brewing techniques, it also embraces modern scientific methods to ensure the highest quality. The result is a range of meads that are authentic yet contemporary, appealing to both traditional mead enthusiasts and adventurous palates.

Makana’s meads are more than just beverages; they are a celebration of Africa’s rich cultural heritage, the vibrant biodiversity, and the age-old tradition of mead-making. Each sip is an invitation to embark on an African journey, to explore its diverse landscapes and to savor its unique flavors.

For North Carolina establishments seeking an authentic taste of African mead, Makana Meadery’s exquisite range is available through Freedom Beverage Company.
