Mauritian lychee wine arrives in the UK

Distributor Green Island Rum is introducing a new fruit wine from Mauritius to the UK market – Divine tropical lychee wine 12%abv.

To make the wine, fresh lychees are peeled and stoned before being pressed. Yeast is added to the extracted juice and after a two to three week fermentation process, plus three weeks clarification time, the juice is bottled.

Originating from Asia, the recipe is said to pair well with Asian cuisine and fresh fruit salads. Best served chilled over ice, this new flavour is sure to be a hit with creative mixologists.
