Ghynzuan Honey Wine

A major export product for the ghynzuan Empire is their honey wine. It is traditionally made with honey, water and grapes. There are however several varieties of ghynzuan honey wine.  


The first honey wine was made in what is today central Ghynzua. It was made by fermenting honey with water. Later grapes were added in the process to create the traditional ghynzuan honey wine. With the founding and later on the expansion of the Empire other regions started to produce their own honey wine by replacing grapes with other fruits.  


Spiced Honey Wine

In the Neba region honey wine is made with honey, water, apples and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. During the cold Neba winters spiced honey wine is usually heated before consumption.  

Caramelized Honey Wine

A version where the honey is caramelized before being added to the water. This gives a distinctive toffee flavor.  

Sparkling Honey Wine

A wine produced near The Pagan Hills. It's a refreshing light colored sparkling wine which is especially popular for feasts.  

Apple/pear Honey Wine

Instead of water apple or pear juice is used. Some varieties have spices added.
