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.
