The sweet taste of ripe raspberries stands out in this unique limited edition of ripe mead. Very pleasant summer fruit refreshment and wonderfully tasty ice-cold.

Raspberries are a summer fruit that we all love since childhood. Properly ripe raspberries have a tempting red color, they are wonderfully juicy and sweet.

The smell of sweet summer fruit
The idea for raspberry mead came about as accidentally as the famous virtue out of necessity :-) We were looking for currants for our favorite currant mead, but this year it was not enough. When inquiring about acquaintances, Milan found out that his friend from the next village did not have currants, but he did have a proper crop of raspberries.

Ripe fruit refreshment
About a year ago, we introduced you to a wild (freshly fermented, but immature) version of raspberry mead, the taste of which we fell in love with for the first taste. Judging by how quickly it was disassembled, we think it was a success with our customers as well.

Honey wine usually matures for at least a year and its taste changes greatly during maturation. Mead can lose its sweetness, which changes to other taste tones. Now the Raspberry Mead is fully ripe and ready to please your taste buds.

Production process

This mead was made cold. This means that during its production, the honey was not heated above 40-45 °C, which is the normal temperature in nature to which honey is resistant. At higher temperatures, some precious components of honey can be damaged and degraded. Cold-made mead is the best choice.

Producer Pleva

Pleva's beekeeping company includes an assortment of not only mead, but also other bee products and cosmetics. Mead is cold-produced.

The production plant of the Pleva beekeeping company includes an assortment of not only mead, but also other bee products and cosmetics. Mead is made cold.

The Pleva family business is located in the spa town of Potštejn in the picturesque foothills of the Eagle Mountains. It specializes in the processing of medicinal bee products (honey, royal jelly, pollen, propolis and bee venom) into cosmetics and food supplements. However, the most interesting thing for us is the production of meads, in which the people of Plevo specialize in single-species meads.

They have been raising bees since 1969 and processing bee products since 1990. However, they only started producing mead around 2003, initially in smaller quantities. From the beginning, they wanted to follow a honey-friendly path and also had the goal of offering something new, unique, which is missing on the market. They officially started offering mead only in 2008. The first mead was herbal and distinctly bitter, they also produced several honey liqueurs with nut and herbal variants. In the end, however, they focused on a quite unique but most interesting category of meads, which consists of meads made from one type of honey. The current offer includes acacia, linden, sunflower and forest honey meads, which are real delicacies and are popular for their distinct aroma and taste of original honey. Potštejn mead is fermented from classic flower honey.

The maturation period of meads is at least 1 year, but some meads have been refining their flavor for 5 years.

We at the Mead Museum from Plevů also buy some types of honey cosmetics.
