From Denmark the Viking Blood – a tradition for 4000 years.
Mead is probably the oldest known alcoholic beverage in the world. From Europe to Australia, mead was a popular drink dating back long before the Vikings. One of the first references to mead can be found in Hindu Indian sacred books, the Veda books, which date back 4,000 years and perhaps even earlier. The oldest known recipe for mead is found in the Nordic countries in 1520 by Archbishop Olaus Magnus. The recipe includes water, honey, hops and brewer’s yeast, and concludes that “the eighth day the mead can be drunk, but the longer it remains, the purer, better and healthier it will be. ”
On the outskirts of Billund, a stone’s throw from the immense Jutland moors, lies Dansk Mjød. A traditional brewery that produces mead since 1994 based on ancient recipes dating back to the 1700s and with uncompromising attention to quality and ingredients. These are the endless stories and myths about mead, which still inspire Dansk Mjød to create products that combine the ancient craft and tradition with a modern eye for quality and taste.
Dansk Mjød’s Viking Blod is prepared on the basis of a recipe dating back to around 1700, and the ingredients are 100% pure and natural – guaranteed without additives of any kind. Honey is the main and most important element in the recipe.
Beware of mortals. Sip this Blod in moderation, for you could fall prey to the people of Jottnar, or merge with Freya’s heart. Drink at least an hour before the battle to enter the state of Bezerkker, like the Úlfhéðnar wolf warriors from Öland.
