The world's oldest alcoholic drink returns

Dating back thousands of years, mead is an alcoholic drink created by fermenting honey. It was once thought to be the drink of the gods and is widely associated with the Viking culture. In this side of the world, the Philippines also have Bais, which is a traditional mead from the Mandaya and Dibabawon Manobo of northeastern Mindanao island in the southern part of the archipelago. Additionally, there is the Kabawaran drink from the Visayas region made from honey and paste from the kabarawan tree (Neolitsea villosa).

La Mesa Mead is the brand name of our specialty mead using locally sourced honey from the Republic of the Philippines. It is made only with the help of yeast, Filipino spices, and a hint of pineapple. Brewed nearby La Mesa Watershed, the last remaining rainforest of its size in Metro Manila.
