Luxembourg was originally forged by the steel and agricultural industries, where hard work and true passion were combined in order to assure growth. In honour to these industries, we created our brand MELLIS to promote one of our countries’ most precious natural resources: the Luxembourgish HONEY.
MELLIS means „from honey“ in ancient Latin. Our brand is a collection of different honey products, which are produced in cooperation with selected partners and local beekeepers. Our portfolio includes new and traditional products that are reinvented or presented in a modern and trendy way.
Back in 2016, our ambition was to start our journey with a traditional luxembourgish product, the “Hunnegdrëpp” (Honey Schnapps). We wanted to create a new version of this well-known liqueur and seduce consumers with an innovating flavour and a creative design.
Our ambition has always been to strive for excellence, and we developed several recipes that were continuously tested during the initial months. By mid of 2017, the recipe and final design were chosen and the first real production of our introductory MELLIS product finally took place. Our MELLIS CLASSIC was officially launched end of 2017 and its commercialization started in February 2018.
Since then, other premium honey products have followed, like our MELLIS POMACE BRANDY, our MELLIS BEER or our MELLIS HONEY RUM LIQUEUR.
Bees work by thousands in the same honeycomb but each one has its own role and it is only through this collaboration that they can coexist. Like for the bees, it is also important to us to collaborate with different partners. We aim at working with selected beekeepers and local producers in order to offer the finest selection of high-quality honey products, which are all unique by their own characteristics.
