Tulum’s Apiculture Legacy Takes Flight with Nikte Kaab Craft Beer

TULUM, México – As the world celebrates International Beer Day on August 4th, the mystical region of Tulum is now home to its own craft beer brand, Nikte Kaab, created by a family-owned apiculture company in the community of Chanchen Primero.

Angélica May and Jorge Dzib, passionate beekeepers and creators of various honey-based products, shared how they embarked on this journey of crafting a diverse range of organic goods over four years ago.

Speaking about their unique beer, Angélica May emphasized that it is produced with utmost pride and respect for the apiculture tradition that has been passed down through generations.

Their path, like any entrepreneurial venture, was riddled with economic challenges and natural adversities such as droughts, harsh cold spells, and excessive rainfall. At times, they faced limited flowering, requiring them to self-sustain to prevent the loss and migration of bees.

“It was during those moments when the need to innovate and enhance our craft drove us to honor and elevate the values inherited from our ancestors, taking apiculture and its treasures to new heights. From the heart of the Tulum Maya region springs forth our artisanal beer and mead, crafted with love and passion for apiculture. Each drop is a manifestation of our roots, culture, and ancient Maya traditions,” expressed the interviewee.

The products offered by Nikte Kaab are 100 percent natural, made from pure honey, a fact evident in the taste. With every sip, consumers are delighted by authentic flavors and nuances that only nature can provide. Moreover, buying these artisanal beers contributes to a positive economic impact on the Maya community, supporting beekeepers and all those involved in these processes.
