The producers of Gïk, a bright ‘blue wine‘, describe themselves as ‘revolutionising the world of wine with a blasphemous drink’!
Red and white grapes spanning several different varieties have been sourced from around Spain, including from Castilla la Mancha and Rioja, to create a ‘sweet and blue drink’ at 11.5 per cent abv.
Gik is not a wine, it is a revolution. Try to forget everything you know about wine. Try to unlearn the hundreds of protected wine designations of origin, and everything that sommeliers have told you about wine in general. Forget traditions and forget that we are speaking about wine as we know it!
Gik is a radiant ‘Blue Wine’ – a sweet, fruit laden blue drink with 11.5 degrees of alcohol. That’s Gïk. Do you want to try it? Gik Blue can be drunk on its own or with food and works well in cocktails too! Serve ice cold on a Summer’s evening! Gïk is born for fun. To shake things up a little and see what happens. To create something new. Something different.
Why Blue? Gik set about creating a radically different product, changing the colour to a vibrant blue and making the wine sweeter and easier to drink.
No added sugar:
According to Gïk, there are four key steps to making its blue wine:
• A base is created from a mixture of red and white grapes
• We add a pigment from the skin of the red grapes – [anthocyanin]
• We add another organic pigment: Indigotine [a plant-based food dye]
• We add non-caloric sweeteners
Join the revolution!
