mead

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.

Metheglin

Metheglin is a type of mead with added (maturated) spices and herbs.

Type of honey

Blossom honey or nectar comes from the nectar of various flowers.

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 Beekeeping Babákov

Beekeeping and mead production in the Hlinsko region

Beekeeping and mead production in Hlinecko.

The owner of the company, Vladimír Saifr, only started beekeeping in middle age, sometime around 2007. At that time, he had worked in a textile company, in a leasing company, in a real estate company, in state administration and local government, and he already needed a significant change in his life. Freedom and freedom is more than a regular salary in an organization.

In order to learn as much as possible about bees, he took a distance learning course in the field of Beekeeping at the Beekeeping School in Nasavrky in the years 2007-2009. Currently, it has around 60 bee colonies, which are expanding every year. The apiaries are located in forests and meadows in the area of the Česko-Moravian Highlands in the vicinity of Hlinsko.

He started producing mead under the brand Medovinka, s.r.o. with his partner Marcel Gregor, but in 2016 he founded the company Včelařství Babákov and embarked on his own path of mead produced exclusively by the cold method. The menu includes new types of mead, of which lavender and propolis are the most popular among our customers at Medovinárná. But they are all good, and I would recommend starting the tasting with the basic Original mead and then the lime mead.

Babakov Beekeeping also produces its own cosmetics from honey.
