Get your drink on with wine inspired by Claire and Jamie from 'Outlander'
Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser
It's going to be a long, hard winter without Outlander to brighten our screens — the show is currently in production on Season 3 for a 2017 return — but in an attempt to ease our months of withdrawal, a slew of merchandise is about to hit shelves just in time for the holidays.
Whisky might be the show's drink of choice, but fans know that Jamie Fraser also has a nose for wine — even running his cousin Jared's business in the first half of Season 2 — so an Outlander-themed libation seems like the perfect tie-in for the Starz series.
If you're planning to throw a Parisian dinner party (hopefully with less brawling than Claire and Jamie's Season 2 soiree) or Hogmanay feast, sipping on a glass of vino inspired by the show's main characters is probably the next best thing to having Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies on hand to toast you in person.
