Mead with amazing aromatic and taste properties of unique josta. A taste that is suitable for sitting with the family. The recipe the Pleva family worked on for 10 years.
The gift for the family turned out great
Wondering how you can attack someone from josta, a hybrid of the more common fruit from our gardens, to make mead? Milan once bought 6 shrubs unknown to him in horticulture, and later he noticed that not only him, but also others, he tasted much more than currants and gooseberries. His enthusiasm gave birth to the idea of loading it into mead.
At Christmas 2016, Milan's children (don't worry, they are all adults a long time ago) received demijohns of jost mead as a surprising gift. Everyone was really excited about it and agreed that you just have to taste it this year too!
And so you get this excellent limited mead, when 10 years have passed from the cultivation of josta to the final larger batch of this delicious drink. We recommend enjoying it with your family - just as we enjoy it :-)
How does jost mead taste?
Smell it first - you will smell the fruit compote that your grandmother cooked in the middle of summer. The mead smells lightly of strawberries, but the taste then shows more tones of forest fruits - especially raspberries and blueberries. As soon as you taste the mead, you will immediately salivate for the next sip. This fruity acidity with the sweetness of honey creates the most beautiful tones on the tongue, which you just can't drink.
Our mead is produced by the 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 have we used high temperatures during production. Therefore, mead retains all the beneficial substances from honey.
Mead is an alcoholic beverage fermented from honey and water, with possibility of addition of other ingredients such as spices or herbs or in combination with fruit juices.
Melomel is a fruit mead with is fermented from honey and fruit juices.
Type of honey
Blossom honey or nectar comes from the nectar of various flowers.
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.
