Chinook Arch Meadery is a company based south of Calgary, Alberta. It now focuses on mead, but previously the company, which was then called Chinook Honey Company, used to make a wider range of products including honey. The company was started by Cherie and Art Andrews in 1995 with two hives on a small acreage in Okotoks, Alberta.

Cherie and Art opened a retail store in 2004, which became a regional centre for all things related to honey and bees. Mead, which is honey wine was added to the product line in 2007. The mead proved to be a very successful venture and it has won both regional and international awards. When in 2023, Cherie and Art decided to focus on the mead, they closed the retail store and changed the name of the company.
