About Us

You may know us as Vanessa and Devin, the beekeepers who started Kilohana Honey! Well welcome to the fruition of our plans, to open Big Island Meadery, the first meadery on the Big Island making mead aka "honey wine" made from our very own honey! 

Eye for Excellence

The Tasting Room

Come by our newly finished tasting room! Here you can try mead flights, sample honey and buy local merch! We are so excited to share this space with you all, big MAHALO for all the love and support as we got this dream of ours launched!

Our Reason

The Bees

For the love of bees. Always was, always will bee! Beekeepers face countless challenges, including Small Hive Beetles, Varroa Mites, and environmental threats – heavy rains and more recently, lava flows. But due to the year-round warmer climate, Hawaii is an overall great location for raising bees. “We want to spread the awareness of Big Island award winning honey, promote the vast number of varietal honey flavors and pair some of those flavor notes with local fruits and spices into tasty beverages”.

Truly Local Ingredients

We strive to source all of our ingredients locally. Hawaii has so much to offer, why not showcase it? If you or someone you know is a farmer with some interesting stuff, send us a message! Lets talk!
