September 16, 2016 – Aging wine is barrels is normal. Aging wine in used whiskey barrels isn’t. Apothic Inferno blends the red and dark fruit flavors of its wine with layers of maple and spice, by aging in charred, white oak whiskey barrels for 60 days. “The result is a wine with rich flavor and distinctive attitude,” says Apothic Winemaker, Debbie Juergenson. “It may not have whiskey in it, but it’s wine with a whiskey soul.”
The fiery style of the label captures the essence of the mysterious place, Apotheca, where vintners stored their most coveted concoctions in 13th century Europe, the inspiration for the wine’s name. Apothic Inferno joins the two wines that started it all – Apothic Red and Apothic White and other limited release blends.
Apothic Inferno is available on shelves wherever wine is sold, nationwide, for a limited time with a suggested retail price of $16.99. The wine has an ABV of 15.9% and is offered in 750ml bottles.
