Moonshine Meadery has made a limited batch of Mead as with all their MeadLABs - and are sending out the first pints to Mumbai & Pune and will be sent to more cities soon!
Unfamiliar about the word “Mead”, let me tell you something about: Ciders are made with apples, wines with grapes and beers are made by fermenting the grains, the same way mead is unique in the taste, as it’s made by fermenting honey and can also be flavoured with spices, vegetables,fruits etc.
- Meads are the oldest and the most versatile drink known to mankind.
- It is a gluten-free alcoholic beverage.
- Made with 100% natural honey and have no added flavorings.
Moonshine Meadery, from a garage project in 2014 to Asia’s & India’s first Meadery in 2018 is the journey of Rohan Rehani and Nitin Vishwas and the creation of the brand Moonshine.

Hopped Mead: First MeadLAB of 2022
They are starting off the year 2022 with a new release of Hopped Mead, which gave a short appearance in a launch event which happened at The Little Door, Andheri with The Easy Wanderlings in December 2021. Ms Sneha Dasgupta who had designed the Hopped Mead label also joined the event for the gig.
This Hopped Mead is made with multifloral honey & a mix of amarillo, mandarina, magnum and citra hops. Official tasting notes:
- Smell: Is fruity and citrusy.
- Palate: Has sweetness from the multifloral honey, followed by fruitiness from the citra, mandarina and amarillo hops.
- Finish: A lingering bitter finish from the magnum hops as the mead warms up a little.
“Thick, sense, creamy, and sublime when the honey overpowers all in its wake,”By Untappd
