COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ett speciellt mjöd på många sätt och vis. Honungen är i stort sett renodlad vitklöverhonung, från Adelsö, vilket har tydliga kopplingar till mjöd historiskt, då Birkas kung bodde här under vikingatiden. Och än idag finns det fortfarande starkt intresse för både vikingaepoken och mjöd på ön. Men det speciella med det här mjödet slutar inte där, eftersom det har kryddats med ett pulver utvunnet från frystorkat havtorn. Pulvret är oerhört koncentrerat med hög smakeffekt, och i mjödet är det havtornen som kraftigt slår igenom med kryddiga toner. Kjell Andersson, som odlat honungen, använder ofta sådant pulver för smaksättning av sin honung.
