Moonshine Meadery Expands its Flagship Mead Series With a New Refreshing Edition, Lemon Tea Mead

Asia and India’s first meadery, Moonshine, has launched a refreshing new edition to their flagship series: Lemon Tea Mead. The Mead is made with lemon zest and Vahdam’s Earl Grey tea. Moonshine is on a mission to save the bees and immerse itself in better beekeeping practices, sip by sip. 

Conceptualized to transcend seasons, Lemon Tea Mead presents a harmonious combination of flavours – lemon zest and VAHDAM India’s Earl Grey tea. Delicate citrus notes greet the senses, followed by the intricate essence of Earl Grey tea, culminating in a mild astringency from the tea tannins. This symphony of flavours rests on a foundation of subtle sweetness derived from Moonshine’s multifloral honey. 

Priced at an enticing Rs. 150 in Maharashtra throughout the year, this offering is an invitation to newcomers, enriching their perception of meads. Moonshine has further partnered with Malaka Spice to resell their zested lemon to promote zero waste and intends to initiate more such partnerships with other restaurants in Pune. 

Rohan Rehani, Co-founder, Moonshine Meadery and Moonshine Honey Project, said, “In the previous year 2022-2023, Moonshine achieved a remarkable feat, using over 55 MT of honey for crafting both mead and retail honey sales. What’s fascinating is that it takes around 4 million flower visits by bees to produce just 1 kg of honey. So, with our consumption of 55 MT of honey, we’ve essentially played a part in supporting the pollination of a staggering 220 billion flowers. So, we are taking one pint at a time and pushing more mead with less price. Our goal is to consistently weave a narrative that highlights Moonshine’s commitment to ecological balance through the preservation of bees and dedicated beekeeping practices.!”

“In the alco-bev industry, Moonshine Meadery stands as the only brand that looks after beekeeping practices. With every pint of moonshine, a remarkable ~ 4 million flowers are pollinated. In a landscape where few alcohol brands champion social and environmental causes, Moonshine’s conscious commitment shines brightly, redefining the industry’s role in fostering a better world.”

About Moonshine Meadery : 

Established in 2018, Moonshine Meadery is India’s first meadery that brings back the ancient alcoholic beverage – Mead in refreshing modern avatars. Made by fermenting pure honey with various fruits and spices, Moonshine’s meads make for 100% natural, flavourful beverages. With every pint they produced, millions of flowers are pollinated which further leads to better beekeeping practices. 

Moonshine constantly innovates and experiments with a range of ingredients—like multi floral honey, acacia honey, coffee beans, guavas, apples, chillies, kaffir lime, and much more—to offer a diverse spread of fresh meads that suit different tastes. While Moonshine’s spectrum of flagship meads—Apple Mead, Traditional Mead and Coffee Mead—are available around the year, the brand also offers seasonal meads known as the MeadLABs. These include Salted Kokum Mead, Mango Chilli Mead, Grilled Pineapple Mead, and Guava Chilli Mead, amongst several others. In addition to meads, Moonshine Meadery has now also introduced The Moonshine Honey Project to offer customers, honey, in its purest form, sourced directly from beekeepers across the country. Slowly carving a niche for itself in the Indian and Asian alco-bev sector at large, Moonshine is currently available in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.
