Bernardynski Royal Mead is a delicious, warming alcoholic beverage made from honey. This traditional drink originated over a thousand years ago in Northern Europe. This mead is made in Poland from a 1:3 proportion of water and honey, with chokeberry juice and spices added. It tastes like semi-sweet wine and is excellent with dinner, or as a dessert drink. It is 100% natural, has NO added sulfites, is aged for a minimum of four years, and the alcohol content is between 12 - 14 % abv.

Bernardynski Royal Mead won gold medals in 1985 at the International Beekeeping Competition Apimondia at Nagoya, Japan (two golds), and in 1993 at the Polish National Wine Competition.

It is the first commercial mead that I have found that I would recommend to anyone! Presently, I am only aware of one vendor: Liquid Solutions, Price $10.50/ 750 ml bottle - well worth it!! If anyone finds an East Coast vendor Please PM me!

The only Mead I found on this web site was a mel. Is that what you are referring to?

This one?:

Royal Mead ''Bernardynski''
Style: Melomel
Origin: Poland
This sweet mead from Poland has been aged for 4 years. It is flavored with chokeberry and spices. Chokeberry has a bitter cherry like flavor and the bitterness is held off by the sweet honey.

Actually, if you click on "the Wall of Mead" you'll find they presently have 21 commercial varieties of mead. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

My local liquor store carries Bernardynski, but not the chokecherry one. I haven't tried it yet, but now that I see good reviews, I will get one! It's a lot more than $10 there, though.

The Royal mead was very good, but not exactly what I expected. Not knowing what choke cherries are, I assumed regular cherry. This mead is very similar to my ABC(although the ABC has more of a raisin taste). I imagine some of the spices must be the same. I gave it an 8.

The Kurpiowski Royal Mead is a better, richer mead & normally 14-17% alcohol.
The trouble is that it's not available currently due to issues with the name & label. The government is very strict on these matters & there's some sort of an infraction or clarity required before it can be offered again.
That's my 2 pennies worth!
