Bitter of honeywine
Sweet, easy to drink herbal bitter.
Water, honey, 50 different herbs.
Very soft bitter, a bit sweet with a fresh herbal flavor and a little tintling aftertaste.
The perfect welcoming drink for a dear friend or family.
Viking bitter settles an upset stomach and therefor very suited as degustive but is is soft enough to serve as an aperitive too.
The flavour is at its best when served at room temperature in a shot glass.
Try serving it with a little sliver of Tjalle Tjarvigg.
On Dansk Mjod
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 - or earlier in case of emergency - the mead may be drunk, but the longer it is left, the purer, better and healthier it will get."
Dansk Mjod from Denmark brews the traditional way, using only 100% natural ingredient, without any kind of additives.
Recipes goes back to 1700 AD.
