Handcrafted meads made from our own Wildflower Honey.

We help adventurous connoisseurs rediscover an ancient libation with hand crafted meads made from our own Wildflower Honey.  Our carefully tended beehives are put out to forage the wild flowers in hills behind Sooke for the purest honey. 

Meadmaker and Beekeeper Bob Liptrot has been keeping bees and making mead for over 40 years. We are Western Canada's first Meadery and have won several international awards for our Meads. Tugwell Meads are crafted from fruits that are grown on our own farm without the use of chemicals or pesticides.

Our meads have placed in Gold and Silver several times at the Northwest Wine Summit


Our products are chemical + pesticide free - if it doesn't benefit the bees, it doesn't happen on our farm.

Small Batch

We use local berries for our mead, mostly from our farm, and our honey comes from within a 20km radius.


Solstice Vertical

We dug deep into our cellar to find three special vintages of our Solstice Metheglin Mead.

What is Mead?

Mead is a delicious alcoholic beverage made from honey. Arguably the world's oldest form of alcohol, mead has been produced and drunk by almost every culture in the world. It is an unbelievably versatile beverage, ranging from bone-dry and refreshing to rich and complex. From "traditional" meads that showcase unique honey varietals and local terroir to a range of styles that feature every kind of fruit, spice or experimental ingredient imaginable, mead is like no other beverage on earth.
