Van Hunks Brut and Brut Rosé meads are made with just three ingredients: honey, yeast and water
The meadery is based at the foot of Table Mountain and both the brut mead and the rosé are made from honey produced by bees which feast on Fynbos wildflowers. The rosé version also includes fermented hibiscus.
The producer uses a patented dry fermentation process to produce ‘unexpectedly dry’ meads, designed to appeal to people whose palates have moved on from sugary-sweet drinks, the brand says.
Matt Krone, master wine maker and co-founder of Van Hunks said: 'Mead is an all-natural untapped product that has huge potential for growth. The next generation of consumers is looking for healthier products containing less sugar. That means the time for mead is now. Van Hunks is a sparkling mead charged with the natural beauty of Cape Town.'
