Queen’s Reward Meadery in Tupelo, Mississippi isn’t just making mead. They’re making really GOOD mead: honey wine that people want to drink presented in a stunning package.
Queen’s Reward Meadery, the only meadery in a 500 mile radius, is one of many Mississippi producers participating in the new Genuine Mississippi program, the “stamp of authenticity” showcasing the best Mississippi grown, raise, crafted and made products.

What is Mead?
Believed to be the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage, mead is created by fermenting honey with water and sometimes various fruits, spices, grains, or hops. Often called “honey wine,” purists consider mead neither a wine nor a beer but instead consider it as its own classification of alcoholic beverage. However, because it’s alcohol content matches more closely with wine at typically 8% to upwards of 20%, you will find it sold and served wherever wine is sold.
Though entrenched in medieval tales, mead seems to be waging a modern-day comeback crusade as one of the fastest growing alcoholic beverages in recent years.
Queen’s Reward offers six to eight products at a time including standard offers as well as popular seasonal selections all made with 100% Mississippi honey. Current offerings include Traditional Dry, Traditional Sweet, Scarlet Noir and their most popular seasonal, RuBee, made with cranberries.
In addition to availability at their Tasting Room in Tupelo, Queen’s Reward mead is available through special order to restaurants, bars and retail outlets in Mississippi – and coming soon to Tennessee. (We think this modern day take on a medieval delicacy will make the perfect stand-out addition to any new bar menu, served as a featured beverage or in signature cocktails.)
Queen’s Reward Meadery is located at 1719 McCullough Blvd, Tupelo, MS 38801 and their tasting room is open from 10 am to 8 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 am to 10 pm Thursday to Saturday.
