Producer Hrebecska medovina

Family meadery from Moravská Třebová in the Czech republic. Producing 8 different types of mead from only their own honey.

Beekeeping is a family tradition in the area of the Hrebeč Hills. The production of mead is the main part of the production of the family company.

Hřebečská mead began to be produced around 1995, but it was not officially commercialized until 2002. Mrs. Bakrlíková places great emphasis on the meads offered being of a natural nature, and she also devotes great care to the selection of mixtures of spices and herbs that have a beneficial effect on the body. These are mostly collected directly in the surrounding areas of Hřebečské hřbet.

With the exception of almond mead (which we do not sell at Medovinárna), all ingredients are natural and of the highest quality.

Basic mead without additives is referred to as <em>traditional</em>. There are also 4 types of spiced herbal meads on offer - monastic, princely, old Bohemian and herbal bitter. They contain different mixtures of 9 to 21 types of ingredients. Wormwood, hornwort, lemon balm, gentian, hops, ginger and many others.

Walnut mead also has a spicy-herbal base, but walnuts are macerated in it, which gives it a slightly bitter taste.

Cinnamon mead creates a pleasant festive atmosphere with its intensity.

We recommend tasting the archival Old Bohemian mead, which matured for 5 years in an oak barrel and is very dense, sweet, with a distinct aroma of 17 spices and herbs.

The beneficial effects of the honey and herbs used have a pleasant effect on the digestive system and calm the nervous system, contributing to relaxation and the induction of well-being.
