Fresh, fruity and floral Danish mead is semi-sweet, where the honey used in combination with herbs add a fruity experience and reduce the feeling of sweetness. A unique mead with a very special character and personality.

Meadow mead is excellent for marinating game, a cheese board, dark chocolate, ice cream or a welcome drink.

Meadow mead is a fresh and delicious mead, it balances the high fruit acidity with the natural honey sweetness of the mead, the taste and aroma are floral and complex, where dry floral notes such as canola and straw dominate the aroma. The taste is fruity and sour; gooseberry, green apples and tropical fruits. The aftertaste is light and fleeting, but still long, complex and refreshing.

Common elm is a wild plant that usually grows in wetlands, meadows, ditches, etc. In summer, it displays its fragrant flowers that smell delicious at the root. A fantastic mead flavoring that has been used since the Bronze Age, hence one of the reasons the plant is called Mjødurt here in Denmark. This herb is almost sacred to us at the brewery.
It is a mead with which we have a very special and close relationship.

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.
