​.

The well-known Danish summer scent of elderberry, with a good full taste. The aftertaste is long, with a firm base of light bitterness, after elderflowers. A fine balance of freshness and fruity notes. Although it is a sweet mead, it is delicately balanced by fresh and fruity acidity and a pleasant perfume of elderflower.

We use a mixture of spring and summer honey from our area. The mead is fermented with a fair amount of elderflower.

Producer Mjødgård

A popular Danish mead producer

We bring you the first swallow from Denmark in the form of honestly and artisanally produced Mjødgård brand meads. The mead farm was founded in 2008 by Odd Castmar with a clear vision and a written manifesto that set Mjødgård apart from other, as they say, "mead mixers" at the time.

Mjødgård should produce honest mead from local honey, local ingredients, herbs, go through artisanal production, the result of which will be a purely fermented product. Sufficient time should have been left for fermentation and maturation.
Mjødgård meads should have a delicate clean taste, which is given by the honey used, or traditional ingredients.
The production of Mjødgård mead should be sustainable, from local ingredients, gentle on honey.
In Denmark, just like in the Czech Republic and many other countries, honest and unfortunately more expensive mead has to compete with supermarket mead, which only looks like mead, is cheap and mixed in such a way that many people like it. Mjødgård meads gave me a taste and I believe they will appeal to you too.
