Sweet honeywine with Riga liqueur
Mead is an ancient, alcoholic beverage made of honey.
Gods, kings and common folk... all enjoy delicious honeywine.
Dansk Mjod (Danish mead) is still brewed the old fashion way:
Honey and herbs are boiled and let ferment for 3 weeks.
When the desired alcohol percentage is reached, the brewer stops the fermentation process; after maturing at least 6 months, the mead is ready for bottling.
Our mead will improve with time; it will never be too old to drink.
Water, honey, hops, Riga balzam (45°vol)
This artisan Danish mead is mixed with Riga balzam, a classic herbal liqueur (bitter) from Latvia which has a centuries old reputation as a health drink, especially good for digestive problems and colds.
The feisty Jyde is a beautiful marriage between the honeysweet mead and the sweet-bitter herbal flavour of Riga balzam; ideal to start and/or finish a good meal.
To be enjoyed pure (as schanpps) or mixed in beer or cocktails.
Recommended to use as a bitter both as apperitive or degustive.
Alcohol percentage: 20.8° vol
Packaging: traditional stone bottle with cork
