A very sweet mead made from late summer honey and lots of apple cider.
Apples add acidity to the mead and create a pleasant counterbalance in taste to the rich flavor of late summer honey.

Garden angelica provides a slightly spicy aftertaste that clings to the palate. This plant was widespread during the Viking Age and we know that it was a good source of vitamin C for the Vikings.
As a final ingredient, we added oak shavings to the mead to give it a bit of zing and character.

It goes great with cheeses, spicy sausage or desserts.

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.
