Aldi is now selling coconut wine
Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get weirder
Now, I don't know about you but in my mind, the association between coconut and booze begins and ends with Pina Colada. That's pretty much the only boozy use I can think of when it comes to coconut. The good news is I was wrong, and Aldi is now selling coconut-flavored wine. Yes.
Instagrammer aldi.mademedoit shared a picture of a bottle on her Instagram a few days ago and then more people began doing the same thing. The sticker on the bottle says that this is made with a "blend of white wine, with rich coconut flavor, and finest cream."
The first professional reviews are also coming in and apparently the wine is very good. According to Tastings.com it has "aromas of coconut cream" and comes with a "creamy, vibrant, sweet light-to-medium body and a warming, breezy buttermilk pie, coconut macaroon, vanilla yogurt, and white pepper finish."
A 750 ml bottle, with 13.9% ABV, will set you back 8 dollars so I guess there's only one way to find out.
