Mead

As the fabled drink of the Bohemian patriarch which elevated his mood, so mead is inseperable from Czech ancestral heritage.

Mead is a mildly alcoholic drink with up to 15% alcohol. It is especially well-suited to leasurely gatherings with friends and the relaxed passing of long winter evenings. Zufanek Mead originates with a two-year-long fermentation of honey with a tried-and-true blend of herbs and spices that optimally highlights the characteristic aroma and flavor reminiscent of Tokaji Szamorodni. All honey used to produce our mead comes exclusively from our own family hives.

Bottle size: 0.5l

Ever since the Middle Ages mead's been one of the primary natural, intoxicating drinks of the Czech lands. It was considered the perfect beverage, and as such was even offered as a sacrificial gift to the gods.

Mead was supplied to the cellars of the gentry, to the castles, monasteries and to the clergy. Mead was even used as payment-in-kind to the lords of the manors. Even at that time several different kinds of mead were produced - dark, light, bitter, among others. Nevertheless, the poor medieval understanding of the microbiological processes of fermentation made for very unreliable results. This fact along with cheaper raw materials favored the production of less risky products – wine (from the time of Charles IV) and, later, beer too.

Temporarily sold out. Next batch should be available in 2016. We are not in a hurry, time is essential :)

Ever since the Middle Ages mead has been one of the primary natural, intoxicating drinks in the Czech lands.

The responsible imbibing of mead is undoubtedly not only a pleasant experience but even to some extent a reliable nutritional supplement. Serve it chilled as an aperitif or a digestif, or on ice with a slice of lemon.
