``Lietviškas Midus'' was founded in 1959 as the only brewery in the Baltic countries specializing in mead. We produce mead-based liqueurs and spirits, including the world's oldest alcoholic beverage, mead. We have many brands that are registered as Lithuanian national heritage sites.
Mead brewing, which was popular in Europe from the 16th to the 17th century, declined after the 18th century due to the effects of deforestation on bees, and mead was only produced on special occasions.
However, in the 20th century, A. Sinkevičius, the founder of Litoeviškas Midus, started brewing mead by applying the techniques he had learned from beer brewing, and quickly became known as the pioneer of modern mead.
The company's mission is to pass on traditional manufacturing methods to the next generation and to present the name "Lithuania" as well as the fact that mead is a representative drink of the country.
