Výrazná vůně a chuť tříleté Včeloviny dozrávaná ve slovenských dubových sudech vás okouzlí.

Apiary is mead made according to an original recipe from three types of Slovak honey. It matured in Slovak oak barrels from Báňská Štiavnica for more than 36 months, thanks to which it acquired an exceptional aroma and taste with tones of prunes, vanilla and caramel. A delicious specialty for special occasions is a real delicacy for the discerning.

mead

Mead is an alcoholic beverage fermented from honey and water, with possibility of addition of other ingredients such as spices or herbs or in combination with fruit juices.

Classical mead

Classical mead is made by fermenting honey and water without any other ingrediences. It keeps its original honey flavour and taste.

Type of honey

Flower and honeydew honey together

Production process

This mead is not cooked, however, during its production, the honey was heated above 50 °C for a limited time. It could be heated up to temperatures of 80 °C, when some components of honey may be degraded.

Producer Včelco

Vcelko is a family meadery based in Smolenice in Slovakia. Their mission is to produce only top products, connected with nature and bringing joy to their customers.

The Včelco company is located at the foot of the Small Carpathians in Smolenice, directly below the majestic Smolenice Castle. They produce a wide variety of types of mead and are not afraid to experiment. Each bottle is of premium quality.

Včelco was founded in 2007 and, as the founders emphasize, it is a "small production with a big heart". Already the following year, they won the 1st medal at the most prestigious international Mazer Cup competition in America, and this motivated them a lot in their further work.

Pavol Kudláč, co-owner of the company, originally worked with his brother at Apimed. Together, they have been bees since childhood and very soon began to produce their first mead. In the beginning, they used the premises where Trenčia mead was produced. In 2007, he and his friends decided to go in a slightly different direction, as he himself said, "play more with mead" and founded the brand Včelco.

Little is known that until 2008 Včelovina was produced boiled, and since 2009 only unboiled using a new gentler technological procedure while maintaining the same composition of honey and the same recipe.

Beeswax Original was supplemented in subsequent years with Beeswax Special matured in oak barrels. Later, other types of mead were added, such as Natural now Classic mead, Prešporská and various fruit meads, of which Currant mead is on permanent offer. The premium lines are kept by Barrique Bee products matured in different types of wooden barrels. Popular are those batches that were left in used barrels after other alcohol (rum, whiskey, etc.).
Some series of meads were gradually replaced by others. For example, fresh fruit Berries were replaced in 2020 with a new line of Craft Bees.

Thanks to the considerable popularity of Včelco medovin and our friendly relations with the producer, we at Medovinárná do not miss any limited edition. You will learn the most detailed information about the products, where each one has a unique story behind it and the enormous effort and enthusiasm of the entire Včelco team.
