Packaging, Labeling & Shipping

2023 Mead Crafters Competition

Updated November 17, 2022

Package your meads to ensure they won’t break during transit. The National Honey Board is not responsible for broken shipments, however we will contact the meadery if broken bottles are received. If meaderies wish, they can include cold packs in their shipments.

Each shipment should include a note or label that states the name of the meadery, name of the mead and which category you wish your mead to compete in.
