COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ett mycket speciellt, kanske helt unikt mjöd gjort av lingon, honung och ytterst lite vatten i regi av Niklas Gotthardsson. 800 kg lingon från västerbottens skogar och 170 kg honung har gett oss 800 l mjöd. Då både lingon och honung har konserverande effekt, var det inte helt lätt att jäsa mjödet. Det sägs dock att nordens första mjöd, ett fynd från bronsåldern, innehöll lingon. Ett väldigt välbalanserat mjöd, där lingonen dominerar smaken. Den klarröda färgen påminner om hösten då lingonen plockades.

Golden color. Fruity aroma, grapes, some acidity. Not too dry, smooth, lean, with delicate vinous character. Weak final. It has a light acidity.
I’m not too find of fruit flavored mead, but still it’s quite well brewed.
