Mulled Wine Spices
Directions: LOW & SLOW is the best method for brewing mulled wine spices.
Step 1. Empty pouch contents (100g) into a large saucepan.
Step 2. Add 1.5 – 2L of wine, heat for 1 – 2 hours on a small burner with lid on
Step 3. Remove lid and serve.
Quick Tip. Reducing the volume by 10 – 20% (heating with the lid off) will produce a thicker, sweeter & spicier mulled wine. Adding port, sherry, brandy or spirits according to taste will increase the alcohol content and warming effect.
Note * Boiling will reduce the alcohol content.
** Depending on your choice of wine, you may wish to add additional water, sugar or juice.
*** You can add additional spice from your pantry to customize our mulled wine recipe.
Serving Recommendation. Try mixing a sweet wine (Lambrusco or Dolce Rosso) with a dry wine (Shiraz, Cab Sav or Merlot). This will reduce the mouth puckering effect of the wines tannins & increase the sweetness, requiring less additional sugar.
Storage: Brewed mulled wine spice can be stored in the fridge for up to a week then re-heated and enjoyed in moderation. Store packet in a cool, dark & dry place. Use half recipe for 50g packet.

Mulled wine is also known and glühwein in Germany & Glögg throughout the Nordic countries. The concept of heating wine infused with spices was first recorded by the Romans in the 2nd Century.
Glühwein translated means ‘glowing wine’ – an accurate description after a few mugs before a Christmas feast or in the apre ski lounge, when your cheeks become red and your merry smile is contagious. Glogg is often mixed with vodka and drank (glugged) out of a shot glass. The vodka is added at the end to improve its gut warming properties and assist sleep…
Throughout the rest of Europe mulled wine is known by many different names, containing various ingredients & liquors. However, the core principal shared geographically is simple – mixed spices brewed in hot wine.
