Skadi's Mead: Skadi lives in the highest reaches of the mountains, where the snow never melts. She’s an avid huntress, and her bow, snowshoes and skis are her most often-mentioned attributes.This mead is a ‘hydromel’ (pure honey mead), using Blossom honey. This gives it a medium sweet taste and is suitable for drinkers of white wine and slightly dry cider and also for the purists among mead drinkers.
Freya (Old Norse meaning ‘Lady’) is one of the pre-eminent Goddesses in Norse mythology. She is the Goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, war, wealth, divination and magic. This mead is a ‘Melomel’ (fruited honey mead) using Wildflower honey. It is wild fermented (no yeast is added – we use the natural yeast present in the honey) and has freshly squeezed orange juice added to the fermentation process.The addition of orange juice gives it a slightly softer and fruitier taste, making it a firm favourite with drinkers of cider and medium sweet white wines.
Ægir (Old Norse for “sea”) is a sea giant, God of the ocean and King of the sea creatures in Norse mythology. He is also known for hosting elaborate parties for the gods. Ægir and his NINE daughters brewed (the best ever) ale in a large pot. This mead is a ‘Tannined Melomel’ (fruited honey mead). This is the most traditional ‘basic’ mead recipe. We achieve this amazing flavour simply by adding tea and orange juice to the fermentation process. The addition of orange juice and tea gives the tannined, full bodied flavour, a slightly softer and fruitier taste, making it a firm favourite with drinkers across the board.
Odin is the ‘Allfather’ in Norse mythology. He is the God of battle and also of wisdom, magic, and poetry. His name means ‘fury’ or ‘frenzy’, the quality of fierce inspiration that guided warriors and poets alike. He is also a relentless seeker and giver of wisdom. This mead is a traditional ‘Metheglin’ (herbed honey mead). The tannins give the mead a more ‘full bodied’ flavour, making it a firm favourite for drinkers who like oaked red wine, real ales or casked whiskey. We achieve this remarkable flavour simply by adding tea to the fermentation process.
