A wine brand known for challenging convention through its innovative blends, Apothic, has created a one-of-a-kind wine infused with cold brew coffee labeled Apothic Brew.
The special brew is a response to the growing demand for cold brew coffee in the World, and especially in the United States, as its demand grew a staggering 430% between 2015 and 2017.
Why is Cold Brew Coffee Special?
Utilizing more coffee grounds than traditional coffee and requiring a significantly longer and more delicate steep, cold brew coffee is much smoother than its warmer counterparts. Cold brew’s smooth texture and supple flavors come from the brew’s temperature, which doesn’t bring out bitter components of coffee grounds like hot water can. The result is a taste that captures the smooth mouthfeel and velvety chocolate notes of cold brew with the juicy blackberry characteristics of a dark red wine.
When Deb Juergenson, Apothic Winemaker, realized that many of the characteristics in cold brew coffee and red wine naturally complement each other, she began to experiment with a few blends. The result was a seamless creation of Apothic Brew, which brings together red fruit notes and subtle mocha essences of cold brew.
Apothic Brew can be served either at room temperature or slightly chilled.
