How To Buy 'Outlander' Wine.
Sassenachs may recall that Lot18 released four limited edition "Outlander" wines last year. While the original quartet is no longer available, the company is releasing six new types of vino. Much like last time, it's a limited edition run, so place your orders fast. The new bottles go on sale Monday, Oct. 9 at 12 p.m. EDT on the (https://www.lot18.com/Outlander) Lot18 website . Prices range from $20-$25 per bottle, but expect a discount if you buy a set.
The wines all have names that are a little more fun than last year (when they were just named after characters). This time, the brand has chosen titles based on Jamie and Claire's many nicknames.
If rosAaAaAeA@ all day is your motto, Sassenach is the pink wine you'll wan The Languedoc-la-clape rosAaAaAeA@ has "flavors of strawberry, whi peach and grapefruit, racy minerality, and clean finish," Lot 18 notes.
If you prefer a nice California pinot noir, try Mo Nighean Donn (the gaelic term for "my brown-haired lass," which Jamie calls Claire). It has flavors of black raspberry, forest floor and tea.
White wine lovers will want La Dame Blanche (what Claire was called in Paris). The pays d'oc viognier has peach and apricot flavors with a bit of acidity.
Of course, the red wine is called Red Jamie. The CAaAaAeA tes du RhAaAaAeA ne r has flavors of red plum and blueberry, and the red blend is comprised of 70% Syrah, 15% Carignane and 15% Grenache.
Mac Dubh, Jamie's nickname in Ardsmuir prison meaning "son of the black," is a Pays d'Oc Syrah. Lot18 calls this "an intense wine" with blueberry flavor.
Finally, Jamie's most recent alias, Alexander Malcolm, is getting a wine too. A. Malcolm is a Languedoc-la-clape rouge, a red wine from southern france. This vino has "the pure, black-red fruit nuances," according to the company.
Lot18 only ships within the continental U.S. Laws about shipping alcohol vary by state, so choose your shipping location at the top of Lot18's website before selecting your bottles.
