If you’re a fan of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, or simply enjoy some wine, this is a pretty neat limited edition collection. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the AC franchise, I love ‘collectibles’ of this nature. They’re something different and unique from the standard tie-in collectibles and fit right in with the rest of your non-nerdy decor:
Winemaker Lot18 has teamed up with Ubisoft to produce a limited-edition collection of wine based on the mega popular and world-renowned Assassin’s Creed franchise. These bottles make great gifts for fans of the worldwide hit game and film, as well as anyone who enjoys a quality bottle of wine. Each bottle will include a specially designed label, making it the perfect beverage anytime.
Initially launched in 2007, Assassin’s Creed games have sold more than 125+ million units worldwide, and the franchise is one of the best-selling series ever. Recognized for having some of the richest, most engrossing storytelling in the industry, Assassin’s Creed transcends video games, branching out into other entertainment experiences including comic books, mobile games, novels, and a feature-length movie.
These collectable bottles can be ordered exclusively at Lot18.com/AssassinsCreed while supplies last. The individually selected wines were carefully crafted by the team at Lot18 to highlight the strong and unique characters from the game – Aveline, Arno, Altaïr, Bayek, Connor and Ezio.
The Assassin’s Creed wine collection will include the following:
2017 Aveline de Grandpré Appellation Côtes du Rhône Contrôlée
2017 Arno Dorian Qualitätswein Niederösterreich Zweigelt
2017 Altaïr Ibn-La’ahad Loire Valley IGP Cabernet Franc
2015 Bayek of Siwa Spanish Tempranillo
2016 Connor Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
