A History of Mulled Wine
The word "mulled" simply means heated and spiced. Many liquids can be mulled - mead, cider, and of course wine. Mulled wine is a traditional favorite in cooler locations, and goes well with the various celebrations that come around the end of the year.

A History of Glogg
Glogg is a traditional drink of the Swedish & Finnish Advent season - Advent being the six weeks leading up to the Birth of Christ on the 25th of December. Glogg is traditionally made with red wine, and each small glass has a few almonds and raisins in it as well as the drink. December in this region is a dark, wintry time, and this hot drink helps keep the spirits cheered.
Glogg's origins are with mulled wine - wine heated with spices. Mulled wine was known to medieval Europeans and celebrated from at least 400AD. In the 1800s, a special mulled wine was popular in Europe known as "Glühwein", which began to incorporate the special Glogg ingredients - raisins and almonds. Glogg also tends to have more sugar as well as a heavier alcohol content. Given the frigid winters seen in Scandanavia, this can be quite necessary!

Back in Europe of the 1700s, people liked to keep warm during the cold winters. A drink developed that mixed warm milk and eggs with Sherry or Brandy to keep the chill at bay. This was served in a noggin - a small, wooden mug. This became nicknamed as 'eggnog'. During the 1800s this became hugely popular in England, especially at Christmastime. This was a classic punch served in large volumes to all holiday visitors. It was served both warm and cold to anyone who came calling during the winter season. George Washington loved eggnog and made his own recipes up.
Advocaat Advocaat is European version of eggnog, is a rich and creamy liqurer made from eggs, sugar and alcohol. It has a smooth, custard-like flavor. In English-speaking countries it generally contains 15% alcohol , but in Continental Europe the typical alcohol content differs from country to country and is generally somewhere between 14% and 20% ABV. Its contents may be a blend of egg yolks, sugar or honey, vanilla and sometimes cream or evaporated milk. This Advocaat was made in Poland by Dalkowski and it is 16%.
The original advocaat was a liquor made by the Dutch population of Surinamend Reclife with avocados. Upon returning to the Netherlands, where avocados were not available, a similar texture was achieved with thickened egg yolk.
The Polish equivalent called ajerkoniak The German equivalent is called Eierlikör.
Thick advocaat is sold on the Dutch, Belgian and Tyrolean markets and often eaten with a spoon, while a more liquid version is sold as an export. Thick advocaat contains egg yolk, and is used as a waffle topping and as an ingredient for several kinds of desserts such as ice creamand pastries. It is also served as an apéritif or digestif. The traditional way to serve it is in a wide glass with whipped cream and cocoa powder sprinkled on top.

Core CORE Bio Pumpkin Seed Beer, a dark beer with ingredients from controlled biological cultivation! CORE Bio Pumpkin Seed Beer is brewed according to our own recipe in the only ‘biological’ brewery in Austria and Poland in Browar Witnica under licence from Core Austria. The master-builder Ing. Alexander Kordyka had the idea to brew a beer with pumpkin seeds - in contrary to the 'pumpkin beers' mainly in the USA which are brewed using the meat of the pumpkin. Searching for a appropriate recipe the master-builder made a strike in Bavaria, Germany: in the tavern brewery of Master Bernhard Sitter at Gut-Riedelsbach he found an old recipe which was enhanced and improved. Pumpkin seeds have been shown to have a protective effect on health. They supply us with vitamin E, beta-carotene, zinc, manganese, and copper. The most important substances however, are water-soluble agents. Scientists have discovered that when the seeds or a water-based extract of the seeds is consumed, these agents are converted in the intestine to active products (enterodiol, enterolacton), which have a positive effect on the bladder and prostate gland. Only seeds from the Styrian oil pumpkin are used to brew CORE Beer. 4.7%
