Dansk Mjod Klapojster Mjod

"A metheglin-style mead with hops, and fortified with Danish Aquavit. Port-like flavors, spicy, warming, alcoholic. The deep herbal quality of the caraway is bold enough to match the massive honey character. Enjoy it like a glass of port — a tiny zip at a time!" —importer

"The world's oldest fermented beverage made from honey has been a popular drink from Europe to Australia dating back to long before Viking times. One of the earliest references to fermented honey can be found in the Hindus of India's holy books, the Vedas, which date back 4000 years and possibly even earlier than that.

"The oldest known recipe for mead to be written down in the Nordic countries was in 1520 by the Archbishop Olaus Magnus. The recipe comprised of water, honey, hops and brewers yeast, and concludes, that 'on the eight day it may be drunk, but the longer it is left, the purer and better it will be.'

"Our products are brewed based on a recipe from about 1700, and the ingredients are pure and 100-percent natural — guaranteed free from additives of any kind. Honey is the major and most important item in the recipe." —brewer

Dansk Mjod Viking Blod Mead

"This artisan metheglin-style Danish mead has hibiscus and hops, which give it a soft, citrus-like flavor and very floral aroma. Its finish is hoppy-dry, spicy, and very warming." —importer

Dansk Mjod Ribe Mjod

"Ribe Mjod is brewed in celebration of Scandinavia's oldest town – Ribe, 1,300 years! The recipe is prepared in cooperation with Ribe Viking Centre. Ribe Mjod is a dessert honey wine that can be enjoyed cooled or at room temperature. Ribe Mjod ages well. There may be some natural yeast sediments on the bottom. Same honey base as Viking Blod/Klapojster Mjod/GI Dansk/Vikingernes with the addition of fresh, unfiltered and unpasteurized apple juice (local apples) added to the mix of honey and water. After that it is then transferred to the fermentation tank and fermented around 6 weeks. Then transferred to maturation tank to which hops (as bitter = balancing agent) are added (same process as with Viking Blod/Klapojster Mjod/GI Dansk Mjod/Vikingernes Mjod). It is then racked for a second time for about 10 days." —winemaker
