Wine has joined beer in the ranks of alcoholic beverages available in aluminum bottles. JT Wines, St. Helena, Calif., is distributing FLASQ Wines, touted as the first wines available in aluminum. The Chardonnay and Merlot wines come in a half-bottle (375 milliliters) with a wide-mouth aluminum screw cap.
The bottles, from Exal Corp., have an interior coating to prevent the wine from coming in contact with the aluminum. The wines are being distributed in 20 Western states with suggested prices from $5.99 to $7.99.
