Sven's Royal Mead. Blackthorn berries add acidity to the mead, which gives the impression of a dry mead with a fresh fruity taste. The elm wood stands out well in the mead and gives a spicy aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. Aged with oak chips.

For us, Sven is a Norse war king who, unlike his father, wanted to return to the old virtues of Viking raids and Nordic self-awareness.
At the same time, he is a temperamental and aggressive gentleman. In our interpretation, we chose to focus on Sven's pursuit of the old virtues.

That's why we found our way back to our sacred elm herb, which was used to make mead already in the Bronze Age. An old Nordic herb that we like to use at Mjødgård.

To give the royal mead a bit of acidity, "anger" and something sharp like Sven's sword, we chose thorn, which also grew here in Viking times. The combination of tart sloe berries, which give the mead a dry and sour note, and sweet herbal mead has created a royal mead that we really think has character.

Sven Tveskæg is a semi-sweet mead, despite the very intensely sweet aroma, the taste is much softer, as the sweetness is tempered by intense fruit acidity and tannic bitterness.

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.
