Drohobych "Ukrainian meads"
And in Drohobych you can taste natural alcoholic drinks made from honey. The company "Ukrainian Medovary" operates here - it is the only certified company in Ukraine that produces honey drinks. Created in 2017 thanks to the efforts of a Drohobytsky beekeeper, for whom honey drinks are a hobby and a great inspiration, and Volyn beekeepers, who have 10 years of experience in the production of honey drinks of various types and have numerous awards and medals both at all-Ukrainian and international competitions . Even in ancient times, honey drinks were a separate elite group of intoxicating drinks, the consumption of which did not harm, but, on the contrary, contributed to people's health. Ukraine, as one of the largest producers of honey in the world, has always been famous for its excellent honey hop drinks. At the tasting you will be able to taste "Medivka" (purely fermented product, which rightfully belongs to the oldest intoxicating drinks in the world) and "Medak" (a balm based on honey, fruits and herbal tinctures).
