The honeywine of the Vikings
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.

Vikingernes Mjod is both feisty and sweet, mellow and round without losing charakter, comparable to white port.
To be enjoyed pure or mixed in beer or cocktails.
Perfect dessert wine, tolerates both soft and more outspoken flavoured products.

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.
