Wine...Red, White....and Blue?World's First Blue Wine!
A Spanish company is shaking up traditional wine industry with a surprising new beverage. Gïk Blue combines red and white grapes with organic pigments and flavors to produce a sweet, electric-blue wine that has some raising their eyebrows and others raising their glasses.
Gïk blends different varieties of red and white grapes with two organic pigments to turn it blue: anthocyanin, from the red grape skin, and indigotine, an organic compound commonly used as a reddish-blue food dye. The resulting flavor is enhanced with non-caloric sweeteners to create a product that is cross between a wine, a wine cooler and a cocktail mixer, with a mellow, sweet, slightly syrupy mouthfeel.
