Mount Vernon Wine Wassail

SKU: 23909

Wassail refers both to the salute "Waes Hail", (Middle English for 'be you healthy'), and to the drink of wassail. Wassail is a hot mulled cider drunk as part of wassailing, an English ritual intended to ensure a good apple harvest the following year. Wassail began as a spiced wine that resembled Roman recipes which survived the Middle Ages. It was a libation for the wealthy who could import the wine, fruit, sugar, and spices. When ale replaced the wine, wassail recipes varied according to the means of each family.
Make your own authentic English wassail with red wine or port. This 1.5 ounce package brews sixteen 8 ounce servings. Contains orange peel, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves.
