NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART: STAR TREK’S KLINGON BLOODWINE ARRIVES ON PLANET EARTH
Famed Beverage of The Federation’s Age-Old Arch Nemesis Now Available on Vinport.com
The most celebrated alcoholic beverage of the Star Trek franchise, Klingon Bloodwine (tlhIngan ‘Iw HIq), is now available for Star Trek fans and wine lovers alike. Following much demand for the namesake beverage of the infamous humanoid warrior race, CBS Consumer Products has released a Klingon Bloodwine fit for human consumption. To produce this sacred wine, the wine was developed by the same team of experts behind the limited edition Juan Ortiz Star Trek wine collection, which was released in 2013 to honor three episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series.
Klingon Bloodwine is a wine historically drunk in celebration and victory. Whether sipped while reveling in triumph or simply enjoying life among friends, this could be the finest vintage of Klingon Bloodwine until 2309. Traditionally twice as strong as whiskey and best served warm, this version of Bloodwine is more human-friendly at 13% ABV and can be served slightly chilled or at cellar temperature (60-65 F.) Star Trek fans everywhere will recognize the label of Klingon Bloodwine, a symbol comprised of the bat’leth or “sword of honor,” a traditional Klingon weapon. The back label includes the victorious Klingon phrase: “Celebrate! Tomorrow we may die!” (yIlop! wa’IeS chaq maHegh!)
The 2012 Klingon Bloodwine is a medium-bodied red blend of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot from the Paso Robles AVA in California. Klingon Bloodwine can be enjoyed with grilled meats and mature cheeses, or traditional Klingon fare such as Heart of Targ. Klingon Bloodwine is licensed by CBS Consumer Products and is available for sale now on www.vinport.com for $19.99, and will soon be available through leading retailers across the United States.
