N'Rootsi is a weird and wonderful Jamaican roots wine containing fermented herbs and spices including ginger root, elderflower, rosehip, burdock root, cinnamon, nettle, St. John's Wort, rosemary, sage, dandelion and cola nut, along with honey and demerara sugar. Sounds awesome.
Wincarnis Tonic Wine is a blend of enriched wine and malt extract infused with a bewildering variety of botanicals including gentian root, mugwort, angelica root, balm mint, fennel seed, coriander seed, peppermint leaves, cardamom seeds and cassia bark. A classier alternative to Buckfast.
Buckfast, also known as 'Buckie', is the notorious wine-based fortified tonic drink, made by Devonshire monks and beloved by 'neds' and students in Ireland and Scotland. Each bottle of Buckfast contains around 280mg of caffeine, the equivalent of nearly nine cans of Coke.
A remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon-based dessert wine, made by storing sour cherries with sugar in the sun, then drawing off the juice. The cherries are then added to barrels of red grape must before fermentation, before being drained off and the sugared cherry juice returned to the wine barrels to vinify for another 6 months before bottling. Fantastic stuff on its own, and works particularly well in cocktails.
