Our traditional mead is made by fermentation of blossom honey, where special yeast is used. Because we want to preserve all the important ingredients of bee honey, the product is not heated during production. The composition of our mead is also unique. It contains no preservatives, artificial colorings or flavorings. None of our meads are soured or sweetened (we do not standardize) and their taste depends on the type of honey used. Our goal is to produce a unique and extraordinary taste. That is why we let the mead to mature for at least 18 months.
You can serve it cold or warm.
