Historical mead

In partnership with the Danish National Museum’s scientists, we have recreated two mead variants from the Bronze Age. Through analyzes of dried-up remains from Bronze Age burial gifts, the scientists have found two varieties of mead.

One the Bronze mead is the oldest variety and is brewed on linden honey and the plant meadow sweat and can be dated to about 2,000 years BC. The other variant the Egtved mead is 1,000-1500 years younger and is of the braggot type, where the alcohol is produced on a mix of sugar from honey and malt.

To get as close to the original method and taste, these two varieties are brewed on custom-made pottery from Florence.

    The Egtved mead is a re-creation of the mead that two distinguished women from antiquity brought with them to the grave 3,500 and 2,000 years ago. On the basis of dried-up remains in the grave gifts from the to graves, researchers from the Danish National Museum have found that the mead was brewed on cranberries, porse, honey and malt, which means that it is the oldest find of the mead type braggot in Denmark.
