The artisanal drink fixation in Oregon goes beyond wine, beer and spirits all the way to bee juice.
That’s what Nectar Creek Honeywine uses to make refreshing bottled drinks in a Corvallis business park: fresh Oregon honey.
Chris Orr, who works at the craft drink maker, says honey wine can be made bone dry to sweet, ranging in alcohol from 4 to 10 percent. The handcrafted drink produces session meads and barrel-aged meads made from quality Northwest ingredients: pure honey, water and yeast.
