Hive Mind (formerly Wye Valley Meadery) are a small, family run company founded by two brothers and based in the beautiful Wye Valley, in the Welsh borders.

We take pride in crafting the very best mead, and from the hive to your hand, we care for it tenderly until we release it into the world.

Combining our love of nature with our interest in brewing. We set out to create something as original as possible by taking a very traditional drink that has been around for over 8000 years, and give it a modern twist. What we have created is light, refreshing, rich in flavour and innovative, but also steeped in history. A true blend of old and new.

We could go on about passion, pride and perfection, but that should come over on the first sip. We aim to be different. Many think mead is sweet and strong and something drunk by druids and monks. Well that was then (and occasionally now during the summer solstice...).

With mounting quantities of honey from our own bees and a desire to drink something more like craft ale, we began crafting session strength meads made with great ingredients and killer flavours. Our mead is a marriage of modern brewing techniques applied to the most ancient beverage.

So please take what preconceptions you have, and refresh them.

We bring you sparkling, medium dry, flavourful mead. We start with the best quality ingredients we can lay our hands on, add yeast and time, and leave the product to do the talking.
