"I wonder if Vilod is still making that mead with Juniper Berries mixed in."

Mead with Juniper Berry is an item found in Helgen. Ralof mentions it in the prologue. The mead with juniper berry can be found in the inn that the Dragonborn jumps to from the second floor of the adjacent tower, but it can only be picked up after the quest "Unbound."

The mead was brewed by Vilod, and because of his death there are only a few bottles left.


  • During the start of the game, when the carriage enters Helgen, Ralof will comment: "I wonder if Vilod is still making that mead with juniper berries mixed in."
  • It is visually identical to Nord mead.
  • The 5 bottles found in Helgen respawn after 10 days.
  • In An Elder Scrolls Novel: The Infernal City novel, Colin asked for an ale in The Crown’s Hammer inn. It was strong, sweet, and had just a taste of juniper. It is said that it is a Colovian Highland style, now popular throughout western Cyrodiil.[1]
