A New Twist on Mist!

April 8, 2010

Craig16We have some exciting days at Wine Sense this month- not only are we celebrating our 19th Birthday, we are also introducing a brand new product- Twisted Mist!

It’s been a while since our industry has introduced something that created a new category for our customers. The last time was about 10 years ago when Island Mist and Niagara Mist were introduced. As many of you know Mist kits are varietal grape wines blended with fruit flavours that are perfect for the patio- lighter in alcohol with touch of sweetness and balanced with crisp acidity. Served on ice they are great with lighter foods or perfect on their own in the warm weather. Styles include, Peach Chardonnay, Green Apple Riesling, Strawberry White Merlot, Blueberry Pinot Noir and many more refreshing styles.


Tiki says "Try Twisted Mist!"


Twisted Mist puts a new ‘twist’ on the traditional Mist kit. Like Island Mist, Twisted Mist are wine based kits. The difference is Twisted Mist produces 30 bottles of 12%, ready to drink cocktail. Just add ice and enjoy!

The two styles offered are:

Twisted Mist Mojito-

Named after mojadito, Spanish for “a little wet”, the Mojito was a favorite drink of author Ernest Hemingway. Traditionally made of five ingredients (rum, sugar, lime, sparkling water and mint) the mojito’s combination of sweetness, refreshing citrus and mint flavors complement the rich intensity of the rum.

Twisted Mist Mojito combines all of these flavours in a ready-to-drink cocktail: crisp lime, aromatic mint and wonderfully balanced, it’s perfect for the patio and sultry summer nights.

Twisted Mist Strawberry Margarita-

Strawberry Margarita is one of the most common tequila-based cocktail in North America, a traditional Margarita is tequila mixed with triple sec and lime or lemon juice, served with salt on the glass rim,  shaken with ice, on the rocks, blended with ice (frozen margarita) or without ice (straight up). Adding strawberries makes for a perfect summery drink: fruity, with the fresh berry flavour balanced deliciously between tart lime, sweet orange and juicy strawberry.

Twisted Mist Strawberry Margarita makes a great summer sipper for poolside, sundeck or backyard grilling, ready-to-drink well-chilled, over ice or blended for the perfect frozen ‘slushie’ right in your own home!

The Wine Sense staff are very excited about Twisted Mist. It expands our product offering which allows us to serve you better which allows you to have a broader selection of beverage alternatives to serve your friends and family.

Twisted Mist is produced by Winexpert the makers Selection, Vinters Reserve, World Vineyard and Island Mist so you know you can trust the quality.

It’s going to be a long hot summer so take advantage of our introductory pricing on Twisted Mist. They will be on sale until May 1st!

Oh yeah, Twisted Mist is only available for a limited time- so don’t delay!
