RIP: Country Kwencher

KK

It has come to my attention that Boone’s Farm Country Kwencher is no longer produced.  In fact, I couldn’t even find a picture of the bottle to accompany my eulogy.  I say this is sacrilege!  Yes, yes – they have about 25 other lame flavors, but everyone knows Country Kwencher was the best one!  Do you know how many bottles of Country Kwencher I downed in college?  I mean, it was fairly sophisticated for my college repertoire – after all it was “wine.”

I remember sitting around someone’s first apartment, opening each bottle with a special ritual we only used for Boone’s Farm products.  We would twist the cap slowly and count out loud as a group how many twists until it came off.  If it was 7 or more, you had a “good” bottle – anything less and it was a “bad” bottle.  A bad bottle was a relative term, since really all of them were bad.  We were just looking for an excuse to “celebrate” a little more if it was a “good” bottle.  

Anyway, I was sad to learn that the Country Kwencher is no more.  You can have all your Mellon Balls, Strawberry Hills and Mountain Berries – but you will never be as good as the Kwencher.

RIP Country Kwencher.  We hardly knew ye.

  1. Strawberry hill is the only one with the old school alcohol content–most are 5.1 or less Strawberry hill—7.2 or something like that—but the Kwencher was always my fav. I’m gonna’ play the good or bad bottle game next time –shit maybe today–

  3. I have an old unopened bottle of Country Kwencher and a bottle of Wild Mountain. The mountain has a $1.09 sticker on it. I do not know how old they are. my 85 year old neighbor gave them to me for snow blowing her drive this last winter.
