Wincarnis

Wincarnis (which is derived from Wine Carnis Latin for 'of meat') is a brand name of a British tonic wine, popular in Jamaica and some other former British colonies.[1] It is a fortified wine (17%) now made to a secret recipe of grape juice, malt extracts, herbs and spices, but it no longer contains meat. Wincarnis has a similar taste to sweet sherry.

History

Wincarnis was produced before 1881[2] by Coleman and Co Ltd in Norwich, England. It was originally called Liebig's Extract of Meat and Malt Wine.[3] It was advertised as made with Port Wine, Liebig's Extract of Meat and extract of Malt, and called "the finest tonic and restorative in the world".

The brand was eventually owned by Hedges & Butler (part of Broadland Wineries in Norfolk, and sold by Macleod.
