Honey Drinks

A satisfying way of using honey

There are several drinks that can be made using honey, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. I feel this is one area where beekeepers don't make maximum use of their crop. On many occasions I have seen beekeepers waste enough honey to make several gallons (sorry - litres!) of honey based drink. During extracting time I have seen several pounds (sorry - kilos!) of honey left in combs or washed down the sink. Why are beekeepers so wasteful, when the bees have spent so much time and effort collecting the honey?

This page, like the rest of the website, is very much work in progress. I will try to complete it ASAP.

I list below the usual alcoholic honey drinks in the hope it will inform readers on the different types.

The above are a few of the common terms. There are many more, often confined to regions where honey and honey based drinks are part of the culture. I encourage the reader to do further research.
