Nani moon Meadery is currently the only meadery located in Hawaii. Making use of the local island agriculture, the flavor profiles available here are going to be quite distinct from anything you can find anywhere else in the world.
Laka’s Nectar Mead
This is a very unique flavor of mead. It is made with honey from
Ohia Lehua blossoms, a flower native to Hawaii, and flavored with
Ohia ‘ai (also known as mountain apples). The nose on this mead has a quite strong honey character to it, with a subtle floral hint to it.
The flavor is extremely floral up front, with a subdued apple flavor mixed in. It’s on the drier side of semi-sweet, but has enough body to still cling to the glass pretty well. On top of all that, it’s a sparkling mead, giving it a lively and rich mouthfeel.
Overall, I really enjoyed this mead. I would definitely recommend giving it a try, if you have the opportunity. It is not likely something you’ll find anywhere else.
