How to Choose a Mulled Wine in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Consider the Benefits of Packet Mix Vs. Pre-Made Bottles
  2. For the Best Flavour, Look At the Included Spices, Fruits and Sweeteners
  3. Make Sure You Check the Alcohol Content

1. Choose a Packet Mix if You Like to Make Your Own Mulled Wine, but Bottles Save Time

1. Choose a Packet Mix if You Like to Make Your Own Mulled Wine, but Bottles Save Time

When it comes to ready-to-glug mulled wine, you have two options - packets or bottles. Bottles include a mix of spices and flavours already blended, making it the quickest to pour into mugs! Usually, you won't need to buy any additional ingredients, so it will just need a quick warming on the stove. That said, if you’re picky, you may find them too sweet or simply not to your taste.


Spice mixes are great for those who like to make their own mulled wine, just to their liking. A good compromise between making your own and buying a store-bought bottle, you can choose your preferred wine, whether that’s a deep rioja or a light merlot, and pour in the spice mix to Christmassify your brew! Spice mixes can also be added to juices, punches and fruit teas for a non-alcoholic option.

2. Consider the Spices, Fruits and Sweeteners Used in Order to Get the Right Balance for Your Tastebuds

2. Consider the Spices, Fruits and Sweeteners Used in Order to Get the Right Balance for Your Tastebuds

Pick Fresh, Whole Spices Like Cinnamon and Clove to Give Mulled Wine Its Distinctive Grounding Flavour

Spices are everything when it comes to cooking, and it’s no different with mulled wine. Every blend has a distinct flavour but the key ingredients to look out for are cinnamon, clove, star anise and nutmeg.


It's these spices that hold the key to unlocking the Christmas spirit as the pungent aromas fill the air! Many bottles also recommend adding some fresh spices to your mug for an extra Christmassy feeling.

Use Citrus Fruits Like Orange and Lemon to Complement and Enhance the Flavour of the Spices

Spices are great, but they aren’t the only thing that gives mulled wine its signature flavour. Citrus notes such as orange and lemon balance out the heady, fragrant spices, complementing the overall flavour of the drink. 


A slice of orange is often added to the pot whilst it’s simmering to help bring out the citrusy flavours, but it’s just as good to get a wine that already includes that particular taste in the mix.

Get a Mulled Wine With Added Honey or Maple Syrup to Add Sweetness to the Wine

Mulled wine usually goes one of two ways. You could get one that's light, quaffable and sweet, filled with notes of berries and blackcurrants. However, these wines can taste a little like hot squash.


If you opt for a rich, velvety taste that's more on the bitter side, you might find the aftertaste is too tart. So, if you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, or want to take the edge off a bitter brew, choose a mulled wine with added honey or maple syrup for extra sugary points!

3. If You Don't Want It Too Strong, Go For a Low ABV of Around 5.5%, but Opt For a Higher Percentage if You Like it Boozy

3. If You Don't Want It Too Strong, Go For a Low ABV of Around 5.5%, but Opt For a Higher Percentage if You Like it Boozy

Mulled wine is an alcoholic drink, but the amount of alcohol in each bottle varies significantly from a slightly spikey hot squash to a boozy, blow your socks off and spill your wine down your shirt kind of bevvy. The ABV (alcohol per volume) will give you an indication of just how strong that bottle is. 


For mulled wine, the ABV can be anything from 5% to 14%. Although not foolproof, the price is often a good indication of how much alcohol is in the bottle. If you get the bottle home and realise it hasn't quite got enough bite, fear not! Traditionally a shot of brandy, rum or amaretto is added into the mix, but we'll leave that part up to you.

If you like it boozy, you'll love our Best Port Wines!
