This is a marvel – a lower alcohol sparkling wine (5% ABV) that is both dry and delicious.  Its secret is to be barely a wine at all. It contains just some white wine but is principally made from a rich blend of teas which brings in the sophisticated layers of umami tastes and a hint of smokiness.

This RØD version (meaning Red in Danish) is slightly misnamed as it is really a sparkling rosé, delightfully pink, dry and crisp and foaming with fine bubbles.  A blend of black, white and green teas is used, including Lady Grey and Earl Grey, from which the bergamot oil adds a pleasing bitterness.  These are balanced with the sweeter notes of the wine and cane sugar and the whole basks in delicious flavours of hibiscus, strawberries and apricot, finishing on long mineral notes.

The Copenhagen Tea Company has created something truly unique here at the hands of the award-winning sommelier Jacob Kocemba, who worked at a Michelin starred restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark.  He has ensured his drinks are not just perfectly flavoured and balanced, but also that they are made from the highest quality natural and organic ingredients.  It is no wonder that his next generation wines are stocked by over 70 Michelin restaurants worldwide.

Makers Notes

The taste of RØD has immediate notes of red berries, hibiscus, blackberries and a balanced citrus. This is followed by a light bitterness from the bergamot oil found in our Lady Grey and Earl Grey teas. The finish is semi-dry, which harmonizes beautifully with the initial berry notes. The colour is light pink with shades of orange. RØD is the perfect aperitif to enjoy in the sun, and great to both start and finish a meal. It pairs especially well with fish and seafood or desserts with berries.
