The idea for the Augustów Meadery was born out of the owners' commitment to the restoration of tree beekeeping. Just like beekeeping, mead-making is a beautiful old Polish tradition pushed out of the market and public awareness by the popularisation of more economical forms of production. Augustów Meadery was established to produce highest quality meads using traditional methods and only natural resources from the Augustów Primeval Forest and the nearby areas. Their meads, valued by consumers and experts, win numerous awards at international competitions, and their recipes, drawn from the rich mead-making tradition, recreate the delightful flavours from centuries past. Augustów Meadery was the first establishment in Poland to start producing Zbicień, a long forgotten honey-based drink.
