Ginger wine

A green bottle of ginger wine, used in cocktail recipes

Ginger wine is a spirit made from a fermented mash of ginger root and raisins, often fortified with brandy. It’s a popular tipple in the UK and Germany, and is even beginning to pop up from producers in the US.

Compared to ginger beer, ginger wine is less spicy and has a more complex flavor profile. It’s also not carbonated, although it is lovely with fizzy beverages (bitter lemon soda is our favorite). It is thinner, less sweet and less spicy than ginger liqueur, and can’t be used interchangeably with it.

Also Known As

  • Green ginger wine
  • Crabbie's Green Ginger Wine
  • Stone's Ginger Wine

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
