Where can I find Buckfast Tonic Wine

Buckfast - Tonic Wine 75cl Bottle

description

The recipe for the tonic wine is attributed to the original French monks who settled Buckfast Abbey in the 1880s.

Base wines from Spain, known as mistellas, were imported and the tonic ingredients were added to these according to the old recipe.

Through the 1920 ′, 1,400 bottles were sold annually, 500 by Buckfast and the rest by mail. In 1927 a London wine merchant visited the abbey, and in conversation with the abbot, Anscar Vonnier, it was decided that the monks would continue to make the tonic wine with distribution and sales being carried out by a separate marketing company.

To add to its appeal, the tonic has been easily transformed from a fairly heavy patent medicine to a smoother, more mature medicinal wine.

By putting Buckfast on the market, the distributing company took a reserved funding approach, which has taken away the widespread appreciation of the product nationally and internationally.

Today the monks of Buckfast Abbey follow the same directions and use the same basic recipe as in the early days. The main difficulty lies in the successful addition of inert substances to a base wine - a living and natural unit.

The selection of the base wine is therefore of central importance. Today the base mistellas come from France the ideal medium, offering for the skill and know-how of the monks a finished product round and ripe to produce the most demanding taste.

The manufacturer's instructions (in English)

The recipe for the Tonic wine is attributed to the original French monks who settled at Buckfast Abbey in the 1880’s.

Base wines from Spain, known as mistellas, were imported and to these were added the tonic ingredients according to the old recipe.

By the 1920's 1400 bottles were sold annually, 500 from Buckfast and the remainder by post. In 1927 a London wine merchant was visiting the Abbey, and in conversation with the Abbot, Anscar Vonnier, it was decided that the monks would continue to make the Tonic wine with the distribution and sale to be carried out by a separate marketing company.

In order to broaden its appeal the tonic was changed slightly from a rather severe patent medicine to a smoother, more mature medicated wine.

Having taken on the marketing of Buckfast the distributing company adopted a reserved promotional approach resulting in the widespread appreciation of the product nationally and internationally.

In modern times it continues to be made by the monks of Buckfast Abbey along the same lines and according to the same basic recipe as used in the very early days.

The main difficulty lies in the successful addition of inert substances to a base wine - a living and natural entity.

The selection of the base wine is thus of prime importance. Today the base mistellas come from France providing the ideal medium for the skill and expertise of the monks to produce a finished product round and mature to the most discerning of tastes.
