Viking Mead is the first brewery of its kind in the Shetland Islands. Inspired by Shetland’s Viking heritage, Old Norse legends and the rugged environment in which it is based, Viking Mead brews distinctive craft mead, the drink of the gods.
Mead, and alcohol in general, was considered sacred by the Vikings and other ancient cultures. Norse mythology speaks of how the dwarves captured the wisest of all gods, Kvasir, the all-knowing, killed him, and mixed his blood with honey, creating the first mead. We haven't gone to the trouble of capturing a god, but we do aim to painstakingly create authentic, modern-day Viking meads using only the best ingredients.
