Two young Christchurch men are creating a buzz around mead.

The Buzz Club is a new mead business by Christchurch entrepreneurs Wilbur Morrison, 22, and Edward Eaton, 23. Mead is a type of alcohol formed from honey.

The pair said they were in the “development stage” but were well on their way. Their brew was already being sold in Christchurch supermarkets and liquor stores, and they aimed to break into New Zealand’s other major cities next.

In its simplest form, mead is a mixture of yeast, water and honey. Morrison and Eaton said the difference with their product was the range of flavours and alcohol percentages they were producing to suit a multitude of palates.
