Liquor flavored wine

Postby Fishinmurph » Wed Jun 13, 2018 4:02 pm

I've been noticing stores all over selling liquor flavored wine.
Whiskey, vodka, tequila, rum, fireball.
Just wondering if this is just a flavored, fermented sugar wash?
Anyone doing this?

Sounds funky. Are they making fortified wine by adding other spirits? I'm familiar with a product called chocovine which is a cheap red wine with mudslide and raspberry syrup added. Kinda tasty, literally panty dropper. It's gotten me laid a few times! :wink:

Not sure if I'm wasting time and effort responding to this - but I suspect the "likker flavoured win"e is a still spirits invention - Turbo wash without stillin' just add "Still spirits " flavourings ! Yuck ! :esad:

Some wines are aging in whiskey barrels bourbon barrels or whatever. Have not tried any yet but i have used wine oak in boirbon and bourbon oak in wine. In my basement.

After you take Mead out refill it with whiskey again.

jb, that's the plan.
Either rum or HBB or red wheat or all corn. That's what I have on hand for grains.

It's a trick for getting around US liquor licensing laws, being fermented but not distilled, different rules apply.
