How does sparkly mead with red currant taste?

In this honey wine, you will first be attracted by its beautiful sparkly honey color. We recommend drinking mead chilled. This will make the fruit tones and its ripe taste stand out better. The taste is very balanced, not too sweet or too sour, in short and as pleasant as the yellow-orange colors of old summer. The mead beautifully combines the taste of honey with a slight acidity.

How is honest currant mead made?

By heating, we pour quality honey, add water, nutrient salt and yeast. We mix crushed currants into the prepared mead, which comes from a grower from Rychnov pod Kněžnou. The mead ferments for about a month, then strained it and removed the crushed currant. The mead is formed, which we must let calm down for about 2 months and then we can turn it into another container. When rolled over, the mead ripens and may begin to ripen. And since then, our currant mead has stood in the cellar and matured to the present day, when we carefully bottle it into the bottles of our exceptionally good autumn line.

"Last summer I loaded my favorite mead with red currants. After 14 months of maturation, I can introduce you to the resulting delicate honey wine, which sparkles with the color of honey and smells like summer fruit lit by the sun. I recommend indulging her in the evening in the chamber company of your counterpart and remembering the rich summer experiences while drinking. "

Cold production
Our mead is produced by a cold fermentation process. Therefore, if you drink any mead from our family business - you can be sure that neither the honey nor the mead has boiled, nor has a high temperature been used during production, so the mead contains all the great substances like honey.

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.
