What is actually Miod Pitny? Is it considered a wine?
Miód pitny = a mead. Meads are made by fermenting of water and honey solution, often slowly boiled first, and often flavored with various spices, fruits or hops. Because the fermentation is involved it could be considered a wine, or at least some cousin of such. During middle ages weak meads, flavored with hops, were almost as popular as beers among lower military ranks.
In Polish tradition there are several classes of "miód pitny", describing honey/water ratio,
1. Półtorak, 1 :1/2. Extremely sweet and strong.
2. Dwójniak, 1 : 1 . Acceptably sweet still strong. Both often called "Royal". Require up to 8-10 years of slow fermentation and maturing
3. Trójniak, 2 : 1, most popular. 1-4 years of maturing
4. Czwórniak, 3 : 1, a.k.a. "obozowy"= camp mead. Good to drink after several months.
Do not confuse meads with honey based liquors, such as Lithuanian krupnikas or its Polish cousin "Krupnik".
