Mead enthusiasts rejoice to Sting’s return as part of Nectar Creek’s Rotating Seasonal line

Corvallis, Ore. – May 13, 2022 – Back by popular demand, Nectar Creek Meadery is reintroducing Sting, a beloved honey and ginger mead beverage slated to hit shelves in May 2022. Mead, the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world, is made by fermenting honey.

Crafted from pure, unfiltered honey and fresh hand-pressed ginger, this golden brew is headlining Nectar Creek’s 2022 Rotating Seasonal line. By marrying honey with ginger, this exquisite beverage boasts a sting of warmth, a tease of sweetness, and a dry finish. 

“Sting is back and better than ever. By hand grinding the ginger, we brought out that spicy zing, and it came together bee-autifully.” said Dave Takush, head cider maker. “This is pure, unfiltered love for the fans. They spoke and we meaded their call.” 

Spicy, warm, and sharp, this craft beverage is the perfect sipper to enjoy while relaxing on a spring afternoon, rafting down the river, or frolicking in the field.
