If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with summer. The first sniff of spring and I’m practically nude trying to get that sweet warmth and vitamin D on my skin. So, I’ve taken it upon myself to try all of the canned wine ready for SUMMER.
If you’re not feeling convinced of the benefits of drinking wine in a can, I’m here to convert you. Firstly, wine in a can is the perfect on-the-go booze solution. Lightweight and compact, it’s perfect for outside activities, picnics and festivals. Plus, a tin kind of almost looks like an energy drink, so it’s a little bit less conspicuous than swigging out of a flagon of wine.
HUN has been on my radar a little while so I thought it would be a good starting point in my can journey. The biggest sell for me is how competitively priced it is – Fairtrade for just £3 for the equivalent of a large glass. Vegan and a choice of three options, white, rosé and sparkling rosé bubbles. It’s not the most sophisticated wine out there, but sometimes that’s not important.
Hun Sauvignon Blanc 250Ml 13%Vol
My personal favourite of the three. Tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and passionfruit mingled with gooseberry and just a touch of vanilla, but still with a nice level of tartness. I think fans of Villa Maria will like this one.
Hun Rose 250Ml 13% Volume
The Rosé is Provincial France style with a lovely light salmon pink hue, nice and crisp with strawberry flavours and a lovely tartness. Very refreshing, perfect for summer.
Hun Sparkling Rose Bubbles 5.5% 200Ml
Sweet, mellow with berry flavours and a light fizz. For me, my least favourite, a little bit too sweet for my preference and the bubbles were a little flat. But these are my personal feelings – you might like it! At 69 calories it’s good for the calorie conscious boozer.
When would I drink HUN?
I think these tinnies would be good for the park, beach, train or a day festival (I could write a whole separate blog about what to take to festivals with camping). The kind of casual trip that requires lightweight and compact packing.
A little tip before you go, let the funk when you first open it air off, the experience improves immensely after that. It’s not the wine’s fault, just a thing about cans I recks.
What are your thoughts HUN? Would you drink canned wine?
