A pioneer in creating innovative blends that push the envelope of what is expected from a wine, Apothic takes its fans on a new journey to experience wine in a whole new way. By combining years of wine-making knowledge and expertise with innovative techniques inspired by the time-honored craft of whiskey-making, Apothic is bringing a masterful and unexpected taste experience to wine and whiskey fans alike with its new, small-batch, limited release red blend, Apothic Inferno.

Aged in charred, white oak whiskey barrels for 60 days, Apothic Inferno blends the red and dark fruit flavors of its wine with layers of maple and spice, giving way to a long, clean finish. “The result is a wine with rich flavor and distinctive attitude,” says Apothic Winemaker, Debbie Juergenson. “It may not have whiskey in it, but it’s wine with a whiskey soul.”

Crafted in California, each batch of Apothic Inferno undergoes a time-intensive, barrel-aging process. The unique character and flavor profiles offer wine enthusiasts the opportunity to discover a bold, new experience. The barrels – cut, shaped, and bound by steel before being charred with flames – were first used to age whiskey for years prior to becoming the home of Apothic’s new red blend.

“Those who have come to love Apothic know that we’re always looking to defy convention with unique blends and bold flavors,” said Christine Jagher, Marketing Director for Apothic Wines. “Apothic Inferno brings a rebellious attitude to the wine category – even the label’s dark colors and intertwined graphics elicit a fiery style, the perfect addition to our portfolio.”

Apothic Inferno is available on shelves wherever wine is sold, nationwide, for a limited time with a suggested retail price of $16.99. The wine has an ABV of 15.9% and is offered in 750ml bottles.

Super-premium ice cream pioneer, Momenti Spirited Ice Creams, has opened in Las Vegas the first specialty manufacturing plant in the U.S. for creating and developing spirit-infused super premium ice creams and sorbets. Family-owned and operated, Momenti specializes in the science of ice cream making using quality ingredients and top-shelf liquors.

Leif_Momenti_Headshot-9.0.0What started as a fun concept by local entrepreneur, Leif Pearson, quickly expanded into countless hours of education and developmental collaboration that has transformed Momenti Spirited Ice Creams into a trend-setting brand and regional, soon to be national, business. A Las Vegas native, Pearson is a graduate of The Meadows School in Summerlin and graduated from Colby College in Maine with a degree in Science, Technology and Society.

“We are proud to announce our factory is the first of its kind designed to exclusively produce alcohol infused ice creams and sorbets,” enthused COO, Pearson. “Las Vegas is a perfect place to open our factory because a majority of the population is engaged in the food and beverage industry and it has become a hub for epicureans.”

Located in the 4000 block of Silvestri Lane in Las Vegas, Momenti’s first full production plant utilizes a patent-pending process to successfully freeze and infuse ice creams and sorbets with wine and spirits, developed by Momenti with the help of leading ice cream industry scientists and experts from across the country.
