Cute mini-can! Akadama is a sweet wine made by Suntory, available in white and red versions. It’s Japan’s version of mulled wine (Glühwein), though many drink Akadama at room temperature or chilled. (Tons of wines here are served chilled. I suspect it’s because chilling cheap wines makes them taste less bad – the opposite of cheap sake/nihonshu.) This new RTD beverage mixes the sweet red wine with soda water, resulting in an moderately-carbonated, instant sweet cocktail to appeal to female drinkers. Akadama is a sweet wine, so you should know what you’re getting into here, but just to make sure, this is an extremely sweet beverage. Those seeking milder or more tart chuuhai should seek elsewhere.
