Modern production technology amplifies the power of the old recipe of the beekeeper Fádli from the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Classic mead made from flower honey, slightly sweet taste, spicy-herbal.

It is made by the classical method, i.e. by fermentation of a solution of bee honey, water and an extract of a mixture of herbs and spices. The uniqueness of our company is that the fermentation of mead takes place at low temperatures - about 17 °C. This method guarantees better preservation of the aromatic and taste characteristics of the raw materials used.

This mead is excellent as an aperitif or as a dessert. Also suitable in combination with pastries, fruits, spicy dishes.

It is served chilled to 14 °C to 18 °C.
As a beverage to heat at 50 °C to 55 °C.

Made by fermentation of the best Slovak honeys according to a traditional recipe.

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 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.

Producer Včelco

Vcelko is a family meadery based in Smolenice in Slovakia. Their mission is to produce only top products, connected with nature and bringing joy to their customers.

The Včelco company is located at the foot of the Small Carpathians in Smolenice, directly below the majestic Smolenice Castle. They produce a wide variety of types of mead and are not afraid to experiment. Each bottle is of premium quality.

Včelco was founded in 2007 and, as the founders emphasize, it is a "small production with a big heart". Already the following year, they won the 1st medal at the most prestigious international Mazer Cup competition in America, and this motivated them a lot in their further work.

Pavol Kudláč, co-owner of the company, originally worked with his brother at Apimed. Together, they have been bees since childhood and very soon began to produce their first mead. In the beginning, they used the premises where Trenčia mead was produced. In 2007, he and his friends decided to go in a slightly different direction, as he himself said, "play more with mead" and founded the brand Včelco.

Little is known that until 2008 Včelovina was produced boiled, and since 2009 only unboiled using a new gentler technological procedure while maintaining the same composition of honey and the same recipe.

Beeswax Original was supplemented in subsequent years with Beeswax Special matured in oak barrels. Later, other types of mead were added, such as Natural now Classic mead, Prešporská and various fruit meads, of which Currant mead is on permanent offer. The premium lines are kept by Barrique Bee products matured in different types of wooden barrels. Popular are those batches that were left in used barrels after other alcohol (rum, whiskey, etc.).
Some series of meads were gradually replaced by others. For example, fresh fruit Berries were replaced in 2020 with a new line of Craft Bees.

Thanks to the considerable popularity of Včelco medovin and our friendly relations with the producer, we at Medovinárná do not miss any limited edition. You will learn the most detailed information about the products, where each one has a unique story behind it and the enormous effort and enthusiasm of the entire Včelco team.
