Wincarnis (which is derived from Wine Carnis Latin for 'of meat') is a brand name of a British tonic wine, popular in Jamaica and some other former British colonies.[1] It is a fortified wine (17%) now made to a secret recipe of grape juice, malt extracts, herbs and spices, but it no longer contains meat. Wincarnis has a similar taste to sweet sherry.
Wincarnis was produced before 1881[2] by Coleman and Co Ltd in Norwich, England. It was originally called Liebig's Extract of Meat and Malt Wine.[3] It was advertised as made with Port Wine, Liebig's Extract of Meat and extract of Malt, and called "the finest tonic and restorative in the world".
