Explore The Life of Bees
Many people know that beer is brewed from fermented grains, and that wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermenting fruit. But few people have heard of mead. Mead is made from fermented honey. Dating back to roughly 9000 BC, mead is considered the oldest known alcoholic beverage known to man. Discover the history of the worlds first fermented beverage here in Sooke at Tugwell Creek Honey Farm & Meadery.
Tugwell Creek was born from a passion for bees – they are the central focus of their business. Specializing in batches of craft mead from locally sourced berries, Tugwell has a true passion for sustainability. Instead of keeping bees on large crops, their bees are located on wild forage surrounding the farm in the hills behind Sooke.
Explore the secret life of bees, understand their importance, and taste award winning meads in the tasting room followed by a tour of the meadery. This is the perfect place for a romantic experience with your partner, or a ladies night out.
Mead had brought people together for thousands of years and continues to do so through its flavor and the passion mazers display for their product. Come to Sooke to understand why this has been celebrated through the ages and book your stay at SookePoint Ocean Cottage Resort today!.
