saving the world, one pint at a time

So, what was on our minds when we created Moonshine? "Free booze for the rest of our lives!"

"On a serious note," says Nitin, "it was more like a passion project and we honestly never thought of formally launching it! Rohan and I are both major history buffs, and when we found out about what mead was and its rich history in an in-flight magazine, we knew we had something fun ahead of us. Soon enough, we caught the mead bug (the mead bee?) and started researching and learning everything about the beverage. Rohan even got himself enrolled in a course on 'Beekeeping' at the Central Bee Research Institute, Pune to study all about it."

"Meads that once highly influenced our Gods, were now being tested on our friends and family! Thanks to them, after countless experiments and trials, we reached a stage where we had a fast-growing demand for our product. This is when Rohan decided to take a giant leap of faith in our idea and turn it into a real, legitimate business. He quit his job and did everything in his power to make Moonshine a reality! I joined soon after, and voila! Here we are."

what are meads after all?

You'll be surprised! Meads are no longer a drink reserved for the Kings and the Vikings, these have regained their fame from the yesteryears and are now the new fun beverage everyone is talking about. A lot of people confuse mead for beer or wine, but it is, in fact, one of its kind, creatively-crafted alcohol in itself, such as Cider or Sake. Created by fermenting natural honey and adding various fruits and spices (no artificial additives), meads are where art and science meet!

But our goal isn't just to satiate your desire to try yet another alcohol brand; we want to create an impact. We want to introduce India to sustainable drinks because let's face it, clean drinking water is becoming highly unaffordable! (pun definitely intended) As the fastest-growing craft beverage in the world and a medium to save the bees, Moonshine Meadery is here to house mead drinkers, artists, professionals, and everyone who is inclined towards this craft. We are proud to be Asia's and India's first meadery and are ready to relish the palates of all ages, for all moods and seasons. Fruits, coffee, grains, you name it and we can combine practically anything and make something fresh, fun and well, yum!
