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.
This is like a mild, sweetish sherry, with an intriguing hint of something citrus. Much softer than a Cinzano or Martini apertif, where the herbs are strong and pronounced. It's understated - easier on the palate than a strong sherry or port. More at the desert wine end - you would want a good 6 oz glass of it. First time I had run across it. Would definitely buy a bottle from time to time as change from straight sherry or port. A good big glass of it, with ice, would be superb in the summer.
Yes. Several times. I wish to order another bottle.
Not as good as the originals of 1950s
Sixty years ago, I had heard the name of Wincarnis from my father who had brought it to my mother when she was expecting my younger brother! That was the first time I had heard the name. It stuck in my memory and, when I saw it on the shelves in Singapore, it did ring a loud bell. Interestingly, my son brought a bottle of Wincarnis with ginger when he came from the USA. It is indeed a tonic wine, a wee bit too sweet for my taste, but when I share with my son, it becomes a tradition stretching over three generations.
I bought this tonic wine as a Christmas present so cannot comment on the wine itself. However, I must say that I was very impressed with the service of The Whiskey Exchange,as I received my order within a couple of days.
