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.

Classical mead

Classical mead is made by fermenting honey and water without any other ingrediences. It keeps its original honey flavour and taste.

Type of honey

Flower and honeydew honey together

Production process

This mead was made cold. This means that during its production, the honey was not heated above 40-45 °C, which is the normal temperature in nature to which honey is resistant. At higher temperatures, some precious components of honey can be damaged and degraded. Cold-made mead is the best choice.

Producer Vcelarstvi Slama

Slama family is running bee-keeping business in Havlíčkův Brod at Vysocina - mountainous region in the Czech republic. They also produce delicious mead according to the traditional Bohemian recipe.

The bee farm in Chlístov near Havlíčkov Brod mainly deals with the production of mead, the most popular recently being Old Bohemian mead.

Jiří Sláma has been beekeeping since childhood, and now he has over 170 bee colonies, which he does not care for because it is stressful for the bees. The bees are placed in habitats where nectar-bearing flowers with lots of pollen, as well as forests with honeydew, are within reach all year round.

He has been fully devoted to beekeeping and the production of mead since 2000. The mead matures in a deep cellar for at least a year. The offer presents several types of mead. Medovina z Vysočina is completely natural, even in the bio mead variant. Since 2012, it has also been producing Old Bohemian mead, which contains up to 45% honey and matures in oak barrels, according to an older recipe. The recipe comes from the 1950s.
