Mulled wine is a beverage usually made with red wine along with various mulling spices and sometimes raisins. It is served hot or warm and is alcoholic, although there are non-alcoholic versions of mulled wine.It is a traditional drink during winter, especially around Christmas.

Wine was first recorded as spiced and heated in Rome during the 2nd century.The Romans travelled across Europe, conquering much of it and trading with the rest. The legions brought wine and viticulture with them up to the Rhine and Danube rivers and to the Scottish border, along with their recipes.

The Forme of Cury,a medieval English cookery book from 1390, which mentioned mulled wine, says: “Pur fait Ypocras …” grinding together cinnamon, ginger, galangal, cloves, long pepper, nutmeg, marjoram, cardamom and grains of paradise (“spykenard de Spayn”, rosemary may be substituted). This is mixed with red wine and sugar (form and quantity unstated).
