Frequently. Asked. Questions.
What is Mead ?
Mead is an alcoholic beverage obtained from the fermentation of honey, it's a complex drink, with a very distinctive flavour. It is not a wine nor a spirit. A traditional mead can range from dry to sweet. Our Ragnarök is a dry mead (less than 10g/L) as it still contains some of the original honey sugars (less than 10g/L), even though most of them have been fermented out. Valhalla is classified as a semi-sweet mead (around 35g/L). Yule and Astrid are classified as sweet meads (around 45g/L).
How do you serve mead ?
Mead can be served at room temperature or chilled, depending on type. Dry mead can be chilled like white wine for a refreshing way to cool off, while a fuller-bodied or sweeter mead goes well over ice with a meal or neat as an after dinner drink. We recommend Ragnarök to be served slightly chilled.
Do I have to finish the bottle after opening ?
Not necessary. Our mead can be well preserved in the fridge up to 4-5 weeks after opening without losing quality.
How long will mead last ?
Most meads age very well in the bottle, some for 10 years or more. Mead keeps getting better with time.
What's the ABV (alcohol by volume) on your meads ?
Most of our meads range between 13-14% avb. Ragnarök is 14% avb. Although, because of the ageing process in whisky barrels, you might get the impression it's a stronger drink.
Can you use mead in cocktails?
Most definitely. Mixologists are finding that mead is a great addition to many cocktails. For something unique try mixing a sweeter mead with a drier spirit such as gin.
