Mead: The Drink of the Gods
Matawi Mead – great for your palate and the planet
Matawi was formally incorporated in 2018, following a protracted drought that brought South Africa’s Western Cape province perilously close to exhausting its potable water supply. Matawi’s founders were motivated to bring to market a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional alcohols, since the latter are made from base ingredients (such as wine grapes, corn, wheat, rye, barley, sugarcane, potatoes, etc.) that are irrigated for months, consuming more water during production.
The Matawi Mead collection
Despite its ancient origins, Production techniques have become more sophisticated over time, giving us a more extensive range of meads with wider-ranging flavour profiles
moreover, at Matawi we’ve made sure to incorporate organic, all-natural ingredients into our sustainably produced beverages.
