Dehydrated Wine from Katadyn???? on 06/19/2009 08:49:41 MDT Print View

I thought this was a joke until I found it on a Katadyn website. I still don't see how this is possible, but Katadyn is selling packets of dehydrated wine from one of their subsidiary companies' web site and it's only available in select countries in Europe. They claim it is 8.2% alcohol, but how would you dehydrate alchohol??? Is there a small shot that you add after you reconstitute the powder???

leave it to the dutch and germans to sort it out. i don't understand the chemistry. and i'm not sure it would taste too good. but i'm pretty sure it exists.

can we get the dutch and germans working on powdered scotch?

Well I'll be! I wonder how much the flavor of the water used to rehydrate would affect the taste. Neat idea though.

If you buy cask strength scotch, it's sort of like semi-dehydrated.

LOL--thanks, Chris!

Ummmm I'll pass. I will stick to my Argyle Pinot's, Chalk Hill Chard's and such. I'd rather drink the real stuff than an imitation.

Much rather bring a single malt anyway

I think his description was enough for me to avoid the product completely. I tend to be a little bit of a wine snob so I'd probably be turned off just at the smell. The way he described it was bad enough without actually having to taste it. The idea is neat though.

doesn't sound too good... on 06/19/2009 18:05:22 MDT Print View

I've heard of powdered alcohol... supposedly there is dehydrated beer looming on the horizon.

but at the end of the day I'd rather have a rumrunner flask full of makers mark or some other good bourbon.

i'm confused on 06/19/2009 19:17:38 MDT Print View

was the beet juice or the vodka spoiled for 300 years at the bottom of the ocean?

'cause if it's the vodka, i may be willing to try this...

Because I choose not to drink alcohol anymore, I'm glad to hear it does not seem to be packaged for fun. I'd hate to be missing something really good : )

Laurie, I am too a wine snob. Due to the fact that I make a living at it. Your thoughts are very correct. I could not and would not drink that.

Nice idea though.

I look at it this way. Once I drink whatever is in my flask is gone, then it is less weight!

Right on. Every once in a while, I manage to extricate my foot from my mouth before I choke on it. ;-}

If only I could get a nice Chataeu Neuf du Pape in a tetra pack... lol... but that just seems so.... wrong.

I have been known to decant into a Platy. I'm still trying to pair a wine for our herbed tomato and goat cheese pasta dish which I will be eating exactly one week from now on a wilderness lake. It's heavy on the garlic and basil... any suggestions Ken? I seemed to be blocked on this one because everytime I think of it, the description of the powdered wine pops into my head... lol.

i actually have one pack of this left if anyone is brave enough to give it a whirl... cover the postage and it's all yours.

like i said in my review - it's quite revolting :)

maybe if you've used a lot of Zicam, you'll find it delicious ;)
