Production process

This mead is not cooked, however, during its production, the honey was heated above 50 °C for a limited time. It could be heated up to temperatures of 80 °C, when some components of honey may be degraded.

This mead is suitable for heating, but we recommend always keeping the maximum heating temperature to approx. 50-55 ° C. At higher temperatures, the precious components of honey could be damaged. For heating, we recommend sweeter and more pronounced mead, especially those with the addition of spices or herbs, the aroma of which pleasantly emerges when heated. However, you can taste the mead according to your wishes, as well as mulled wine.

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.

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.
