Høvdingen – (Norwegian for chieftain), is the nickname of the main author on Viking-mjod.no This is a guy who despite having a full job at a normal company, dedicate all his free time to the pursuit of viking knowledge, especially the use of natural ingredients in food and drinks.
This is not to say that this guys is an industry, locally or even academic expert in the subject – just very very interested …
Mead is one of the main interests, but the poor guy, this Chieftain – has for some odd reason more an interest in the flavors, and less in the effect the alcohol has . Therefore- most of the mead he makes throughout the year – and that could be quite a lot – ends up with his VERY happy friends….
( and no .. theres a waiting ist to be new mead-tasters ….)
