Amica mead is hand-made in our restaurants in the traditional way
“Amica mead is hand-made in our restaurants in the traditional way. We prepare Amica mead the same way we do it at home: first we peel the lemons and boil some water and brown sugar. The mead is bottled with raisins, and then we allow the yeast to ferment. That is why it has the traditional flavour people have known since their childhoods”, explains Marianne Nordblom, gastronomy and product development director at Fazer Food Services.
Make sure you get your own bottle – this well-loved mead is very popular!
Homemade mead is part of the annual May Day celebrations, and it is one of the most popular seasonal takeaway products sold at Amica restaurants. That is why Amica employees start to prepare it well in advance every year. Amica mead sells out everywhere in Finland by the morning of 30 April, so make sure you get your bottle in time!
