Everything's Coming Up Rose'

H1-rose-1Last year, we saw rosé everywhere: on tap, in cocktails, and in slushie "frosé" format. 

This year I think we'll be seeing rosé mixed into more and more finished products. 

This week, Hangar 1 Vodka announced a new rosé flavor. The brand says it is: 

"Hangar 1 Rosé is a first-of-its-kind blend of our classic Hangar 1 vodka and real California rosé wine."

The label says it's 5% rosé with the voda, and it's 30% ABV. 

Wolffer-gin1Previous to this there was a rosé gin on the market, Wolffer Estate Rosé Gin. According to Bon Appetit, it is, "distilled and fermented their rosé wine, then infused it with juniper berries, five botanicals, and lime rind."

Interestingly, the website only describes it as a "pink gin."

Rose_LandingPage_408pxAlso just announced a couple weeks ago is Crispin Cider's new rosé flavor. How would a cider be rosé, since it's made from a base of apples and not grapes? Well, it turns out this is a rosé in name only, but in reality it's more like rosy. 

"Crispin Rosé is an elegant blend of apple and pear juice crafted with rose petals and hibiscus."

Many more to come, I'm sure.
