Thanks to These Assassin's Creed Wines You Can Now Drink Your Favourite Assassin
Reliquum est in vinum. (That means "Rest in wine" in Latin)
If you’ve ever wondered what your favorite Assassin’s Creed assassin tastes like as a wine, you’re going to finally know thanks to a new wine collection launching across America.
Yes, that’s right, there are now six types of wines available and inspired by Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed characters. Wine specialists Lot18 teamed up with Ubisoft to bring the collection to life, and this collection joins their others, such as AMC’s The Walking Dead, and The Lord of the Rings. The Assassin’s Creed collection is the company’s only video game related collection.
Here’s what the collection includes:
- 2017 Aveline de Grandpré Appellation Côtes du Rhône Contrôlée
- 2017 Arno Dorian Qualitätswein Niederösterreich Zweigelt
- 2017 Altaïr Ibn-La’ahad Loire Valley IGP Cabernet Franc
- 2015 Bayek of Siwa Spanish Tempranillo
- 2016 Connor Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
- 2015 Ezio Auditore Super Tuscan Red Blend
Each individual bottle costs $20 and there are options to purchase a half-case or a full case. The half-case originally costs $120 (Currently $108) and the full-case $240 (Currently $192). Each one of the Assassin’s Creed bottles includes a specially designed label to admire as you pass either Aveline, Arno, Altaïr, Bayek, Connor, and Ezio through your lips.
The wines can drank from now through to 2022-2024, with the end year varying for individual bottles. The alcohol percentage ranges from 13-14%, once again varying with each selection.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was recently nominated for Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2018, and imagine if you had a bottle of one of the above to celebrate it winning, or to drown your sorrows if it doesn’t.
This does beg the question though, what assassin would you want to drink the most? Here’s the website which details what the wine tastes like, and what it’s best paired with.
If you’re here for gaming stuff, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey just got a new patch that introduced a visual customization system as well as other feature improvements. It’s also available now for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
