One of the reasons we have a limited and rotating menu is that everything you eat represents extensive research and tons of experimentation.
While most of our food is locally grown or made in-house, we strive to use only Old World ingredients: things that would have been available in Scandinavia during the Viking Era through late Middle Ages. We use traditional curing, smoking, boiling, and roasting techniques as well.
Why do we do all this work? Because it’s cool. And, frankly, we’re nerds about this. Rules actually help us to be more creative. If we can only use certain ingredients, it makes us think in new ways.
Another reason we do all of this is because the Vikings had an extremely healthy diet. It’s tough to conquer the land and seas without a good breakfast of fatty meats and lots of vegetables. As part of our mission to build strong communities, we are deeply committed to providing healthy, ethically sourced foods.
The one area where we take some license is with our cheeses. They are all imported from Scandinavia, and cheese was probably a very important part of the Viking diet, but we simply have no way of knowing what types of cheese they were eating.
Oh yeah, and since we’re fanatically committed to being an open source company, all of our recipes are free for you to make at home. Once we have them all locked-down, we’ll be publishing them for your enjoyment!

Golden apple of Discord is my new favorite mead from Groennfell. The apple combined with the other notes really mixes for a delicious drink that goes down smooth. The longer you roll it on the tongue the better it gets. I usually don't finish a whole bottle but I couldn't help it with this! Do yourself a favor and pick up a case!
This 1 was fantastic! Got 2 bottles alongside a bottle of delicious Heggir! 😋 Golden Apple or Discord is basically Vanir, which is always good, but blended with some rather tasty apple goodness! I thoroughly enjoyed it! If & when it comes back around, I highly recommend grabbing yourself a bottle...or 3! 😅
This one has the intro of Valkyries Choice but has a nice Oak woodsy finish to it. It has a pleasant small too, almost like oak wood barrel and champagne together. Could be the combination with the honey. It’s smooth and delightful!
Although I can't say that this is quite as good this time around as the last time (the maple sweetness wasn't as pronounced as last time), it's still quite good and if you love ginger! I have still enjoyed drinking it.
It is delicious. The spice gives hints of nutmeg and the finish give hints of pumpkin pie, cozy celebrations with good company.
