The idea for starting Augustow Meadery comes from our activity as treebeekeepers and with the desire to share our experience in home mead making. Same as treebeekeeping, mead making is an old beautiful tradition that was set aside with popularization of cheaper and more commercial way of production. Meads were ousted from the market by much more cheaper wine and other alcohol products. Honey is the most expensive and precious raw material for production of alcohol that could be found on this planet. We opened Augustow Meadery to uphold this beautiful tradition in our region and to continue traditional way of mead production that our country was famous for in the past. We use only natural raw materials for our production that were collected from Augustów Forest or neighbouring areas of Poland and Lithuania. Part of the income we dedicate to Treebeekeeping Brotherhood to support restoration of treebeekeeping culture. Recipes for our meads we take from the reach tradition of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. We want to recreate the flavors that delighted our ancestors. We were the first in Poland who started the production of the forgotten Zbicień (Session mead).
