Enlightenment Wines, a meadery in New York, was founded by Marks and Raphael Lyon, with the help of Anthony Rock. In order to offer East Williamsburg alcoholic drinks that have been largely unexplored in the area, the three created a front-of-house cocktail bar and tasting room that was dubbed Honey's.

Here, visitors of Enlightenment Wines can try out unique meads like Jewels Into Flowers, "an apple mead made from chrysanthemum and chamomile flowers," and Memento Mori, which has flavors that are "drawn from foraged dandelion flowers." In addition to a variety of different meads, Honey's offers a number of light bar snacks that complement their flavors.

With this endeavor, Enlightenment Wines aims to show its patrons the endless possibilities that come from combining natural ingredients -- inspiring them to experiment themselves.
