New York state is offering new licenses to operate farms for the production of mead, an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey with water.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced March 21 that applications for operating farm meaderies are now being accepted.

The Democrat says the move builds on New York's standing as the nation's leading craft beverage state and the top honey producer in the Northeast.

Cuomo signed legislation in December that authorizes the licensing of farm meaderies for the production and sale of mead made exclusively from New York-produced honey.

Farm meaderies are allowed to sell their products by the glass or bottle from their manufacturing facilities or tasting rooms, along with any other wine, beer, cider or spirits produced by a New York state farm manufacturer.
