  • Maine Mead Works was founded in 2007 with the goal of re-introducing the world to the oldest of all fermented beverages. Using locally sourced honey, clear, pure water and our own proprietary yeast strain, we blend ancient tradition and modern science to produce distinctive wines at our meadery in downtown Portland, Maine.


    In collaboration with South African scholar Dr. Garth Cambray, Maine Mead Works developed a state-of-the-art continuous fermentation system, bringing mead making into the 21st century. HoneyMaker, a decidedly modern mead — crisp, dry and refreshing — is the result.


    A Sense of Place


    Ultimately, Maine Mead Works is about Maine — the fields, forests and flowers that make HoneyMaker great. Owners Ben Alexander and Carly Cope, along with their growing family of employees, believe in the wisdom of handcrafting and small batch production. Today, the company that began as an experiment in sustainability has grown into a foodie favorite at the forefront of the local, artisanal movement.


    Ingredients ranging from wildflower honey to English lavender, Gillespie and Maxwell Farms strawberries and Heath Hill Farms elderberries, are sourced locally . Every bottle of HoneyMaker mead supports family farms, encourages apiculture and enhances biodiversity. Of course, it also tastes great — here, amidst the natural splendor of our great state or further afield.
