The term “honey wine” is now widely used by chefs, bar owners, and wine makers.
In fact, it is one of the terms used in a survey published in 2017 by the Wine Council of Australia.
The report showed that in 2017, around 2.6 million Australians aged 20 and over were drinking honey wine.
That is almost a third of the population.
The survey also showed that nearly one in four Australians were drinking a drink that is sweetened with honey.
“I think the word honey is one that has been used for a long time and is very often associated with food,” says Dr Emma Wilson, associate professor of beverage science at the University of Queensland.
“In terms of honey as a drink, it was probably a relatively recent development, so it’s hard to see why it’s such a buzzword nowadays.”
Dr Wilson says the word has gained popularity because it has been “fascinated by a large group of people”.
“They’ve all been interested in it, and a lot of it has come from people who are using it to talk about food or people who don’t like the idea of honey.”
Dr Williams says the honey drink is an exciting development because it helps to address a number of issues.
“People are starting to use it in more casual settings, it’s very popular with the older people and those who don.”
The idea of using honey to enhance wine and food has been around for quite some time, and I think this is an interesting extension of that.
“In addition to the health benefits of honey wine and its ability to be a honey beverage, honey has been shown to reduce inflammation.
She says there is also a lot to be excited about. “
It is an ingredient in some of the best-selling food products and has been associated with a variety of health benefits,” Dr Williams adds.
She says there is also a lot to be excited about.
“We are just at the start of the honey wine revolution and there are some really exciting trends going on that will see us all enjoying our honey wines for many years to come.”
The Australian Society of Wine Professionals (ASWP) also says that the use of honey is increasing and its members are keen to know what they can do to promote the honey beverage.
“Our members are excited about the future of the wine industry, as we have seen so many great examples of how wine can be used to benefit people in a variety or way,” Dr Wilson explains.
“This includes making a wine that’s also healthy, delicious and nutritious.”
Dr Smith agrees that the honey is becoming a hot drink and says its popularity will continue to increase.
“Honey wine is a very popular drink and it’s gaining in popularity.
It’s one of those drinks that people associate with food, wine and the wine trade, so I think its going to continue to grow,” she says.
