Tugwell Creek Honey Farm and Meadery was liscenced in 2003 as the first Meadery in Western Canada. At our oceanside honeyfarm we hand craft the highest quality Meads (Honey Wines) from local honey. Meadmaker Bob Liptrot has kept bees since the age of 6 and has been making mead for over 35 years. Come taste our award winning meads and honey. In 2014 we became the new Economusee on Vancouver Island. Tugwell now boasts a museum quality exhibit, interactive displays, and a self guided audio tour.

There is really not much to see on the self-guided tour - that was disappointing . We tasted some of its wines and ports, which are too sweet for us. It was nice to finally be able to see what mead is all about!

I love mead and was very happy to discover this place, where they make it from their own honey. Worth a visit!! THe owner is nice, and sampled some honey and mead with the wife. Even the kids had a better time than I'd expected.
