Deciding between red, white and rose was already a difficult task, and now there is this bright blue colored wine. Imagined by a Spanish startup Gik, the Blue Wine is the world’s first natural blue-colored drink that aims to revolutionize wine industry.

With no denomination of origin, the blue wine is made from grapes collected from different Spanish and French vineyards, which then under fermentation process to become wine with beautiful blue hue.
Claiming to be next big thing among wine loving millennials, Gik is produced through a pigmentation process, where base is created from a mixture of white and red grapes, which is then added with two organic pigments, i.e., anthocyanin and Indigotine to attain blue color.
