Mead Making Contract or Mead Maker (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )


  Ravensbourne Bees (

  London (but can be flexible), England

We are looking for a contract mead maker.

We produce honey from our apiaries in South-East London. This year (2020) we have more honey than we can easily sell as bottled honey.

Therefore we would like to explore the potential for mead, which we know has attracted some interest in the UK in recent years. We would like to make about 300 litres in the first instance.

Mead, fermented honey, can be produced in facilities usually operated for wine making, and is usually made at similar alcohol content to wine. It has some particular requirements as it has a higher bacterial content and is harder to clear than wine. It has the advantage that it can be bottled and sold within weeks to months, without a long maturation period.

We are interested in a mead making contract, or alternatively working with an individual with skill in this area who would be interested on working with us, producing the mead and developing mead making in some form of partnership.

Informal discussions would be welcome.
