Metsiederei Eckert


Sustainable produced organic meads from Switzerland

CH-3044 Innerberg


The story

Metsiederei Eckert was founded in 2013 as there was no mead to be found in Switzerland which the founder, Mr. Alexander Eckert liked.
The first two meads produced "Milfion" and "NorseMet" are still seethed today - beside of other "newer" meads.
Mainly traditional meads are made, especially with a strong focus in using local resources, renewable energy and caring about the bees where the honey comes from.
Also a accent is put on wild yeasts as they deliver tastes who can't be found in labor yeasts.

Mead production

Mead is produced in the old, simple way:
Warm water is mixed with honey and fermented up to half a year.
After fermentation the young mead runs through a Pasteurizer and get to mature in either steel tanks or barriques from 6months to 1year.
All meads (beside of special small batches) are organic CH-BIO certified.
