It does seems awfully like we’re witnessing the start of our dystopian future. Thankfully, a Spanish winemaker has already created the wine you’ll be swilling on that Fhloston Paradise pleasure barge.
Gik has engineered a blue wine, which is actually a blend of white and red grapes “enhanced”by adding indigo dye andanthocyanin, which is derived from grape skins.
“Try to forget all you know about wine,” the website says. “Try to unlearn the hundreds of protected wine designations of origin, the complex and demanding service standards and everything that sommelier said at a tasting course.” Translation: Those additives don’t do much for the taste, so drinkthis purely because it’s blue and alcoholic. Gotta respectthat kind of honesty.
Currently, Gik is only available in Europe and the U.K., but there are plans to bring it across the ocean. Yay?
