Default Blackberry Honey Mead Label

I'm of Norwegian descent, so I'd like to make a mead label that includes some of the language. I simply want to translate "blackberry honey mead" to Norwegian. So far, all I know is that the three words in question are:

bjørnebær honning mjød

Can anyone lend a hand?

EDIT: I got the answer (below). Here's the result:

Unless anyone corrects me, I'll likely make the label read:


Bjørnebærhonning Mjød

Ya might want to do what Parker36 suggested. Norwegian, Danish, etc... are based on Old Norse and the Bjorne part is Bjarne (name of my plant mgr.) in Danish/Old Norse and, if I remember correctly, translates to bear/black bear. I don't have time right now to double check and I know somewhere I have a link to the Danish translations. Just what I could add for now.

I don't even pretend to know a little about the language...
Here is what I found on an online translator.

blackberry honning mjød

Blackberry is bjørnebær, honey is honning and mead is mjød, so you're on the right track. In Norwegian compound words, it would be "Bjørnebærhonningsmjød" (which I myself find too weird) or "Mjød av bjørnebærhonning" (much better).

Also note that you should only capitalise the first word of the title.

Don't you really want it to just say "blackberry mead," though? "Honey mead" is redundant, AND repetitive.
