What Is The New Cold Brew Red Wine All About?
The coolest (rather, the coldest) new trend around? Cold brew-flavored foods and beverages.
We’ve seen it recently in everything from cold brew-infused chocolate bars to cold brew-flavored ice cream. But we just found out about another product that we never saw coming: cold brew coffee-infused red wine.
Apothic Wines recently introduced the innovative beverage blend, which is called Apothic Brew.
The Apothic Brew announcement explains that it was a cold brew lover who came up with the idea for this unexpected drink combo, and the winemaker is responsible for the creation. “Last year during the long hours of harvest, I joined the cold brew craze myself. Quickly, I realized that many of the characteristics in cold brew coffee and red wine naturally complement each other,” winemaker Debbie Juergenson shared.
Shortly after Juergenson had her cold brew epiphany, the Apothic team started experimenting with different red wine blends. Eventually, they ended up making one that married red fruit notes with subtle mocha flavors. This blend became the Apothic Brew, as reported by Refinery29.
Coffee-infused wine may seem bizarre (especially because we love to unwind at the end of a day with a little red wine), but the Apothic Wines website says that each bottle contains less caffeine than a standard cup of decaf coffee.
So we’re good to go.
Apothic Brew is slated to hit shelves in April, but it’s a small-batch release, so find out where you can snag some yourself here.
Down to give it a try? Wine not!?
