A rich and very sweet Danish mead with a honeyed and dense taste of forest berries such as blackberries, wild strawberries or black currants. The mead is aged with oak chips to fine-tune the exceptional taste.

The tartness of wild berries forms a subtle counterpoint to the honey in this mead. It has a rich base of berries, with a light taste of oak. Fine long aftertaste of fruity flavors. Everything good from the Danish forests gathered in one mead.

Perfect for any dessert table, served cold with cheeses, ice cream, fruit, cake and dark chocolate.

Forest mead is an unusual mead, dominated by a very intense acidity, but still a decidedly sweet mead. The aroma is violently intense, yet mild and characterized by sweet berries such as strawberries or blueberries. The taste, on the other hand, is far more aggressive in its acidity, with clear notes of more acidic berries such as blackberries or blackcurrants. The acidity covers the intense sweetness of the mead until the sweetness is allowed to develop

Producer Mjødgård

A popular Danish mead producer

We bring you the first swallow from Denmark in the form of honestly and artisanally produced Mjødgård brand meads. The mead farm was founded in 2008 by Odd Castmar with a clear vision and a written manifesto that set Mjødgård apart from other, as they say, "mead mixers" at the time.

Mjødgård should produce honest mead from local honey, local ingredients, herbs, go through artisanal production, the result of which will be a purely fermented product. Sufficient time should have been left for fermentation and maturation.
Mjødgård meads should have a delicate clean taste, which is given by the honey used, or traditional ingredients.
The production of Mjødgård mead should be sustainable, from local ingredients, gentle on honey.
In Denmark, just like in the Czech Republic and many other countries, honest and unfortunately more expensive mead has to compete with supermarket mead, which only looks like mead, is cheap and mixed in such a way that many people like it. Mjødgård meads gave me a taste and I believe they will appeal to you too.
