Boone’s Farm is a fairly standardized, fairly popularized malt liquor. In some circles you may call it a “cheap wine” or low-end wine cooler while other people may consider it “the best” wine around. To each his own.
What Boone’s Farm is, without a doubt, is a cost effective product from E&J Gallo Winery located in Modesto California. Recently, I purchased three bottles of Boone’s Farm for roughly $5.00 for all three full bottles. Granted, two were on sale because they were being discontinued, saving 33% on the whopping $3.00 fortified wine.
Boone’s Farm can be found in the boxed wine area of your liquor store or grocery store or anywhere around the wine coolers or lower end bottles of cheap wine. It comes in a large variety of flavors, although some are easier to find than others.
The Blue Hawaiian tastes like a hot Hawaiian beach (or, alternatively, a bottle of sun tan lotion), it’s a bright blue liquid that taste best on ice. Strawberry Hill mimics the flavor of a chilling wine cooler with a good alcoholic punch (like 7% ABV instead of 4% like some of the others) and Strawberry Daiquiri is a thin bright red color with the sweet taste of an alcohol fortified Strawberry Daiquiri mix.
Is it the perfect beverage? Not by a long shot. Is it a fun beverage when you’re looking to party up with friends or have a sweet tooth and a light heart? Definitely.
Boones Farm is considered a Malt Liquor, which you’ll know all about in our upcoming drinking podcast episode on Malt Liquors.
