Consumers will soon be able to get their mead fix once again as Mac’s brings back its popular Mac’s Love Buzz mead, and this time it’s for good. Kamahi, Clover and Manuka honey come together to create a sparkling, golden-coloured mead.
One of the oldest alcoholic drinks known to man, mead is made by fermenting honey mixed with water. The Kamahi Honey that Mac’s use has an intense and complex flavour which brewers combine with a milder sweeter Clover honey. After a long fermentation process that utilises white wine yeast, a touch of Manuka honey is added to enhance the flavour further. In the case of Mac’s Love Buzz, the result is a beverage that’s subtly sweet and surprisingly refreshing.
“Love Buzz was launched in February 2017 as a limited release, and it sold out so quickly that we knew we were onto a winner. It’s an ideal drop for those who are gluten intolerant or looking for a refreshing drink that’s thirst-quenching and not too sweet,” said Mac’s Kurt Gross.
