Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized. ~ Andre Simon, "Commonsense of Wine"Carrot Wine
Orange -2 nos
Lime -2 nos
Raisins -300 gms (chopped)
Whole wheat - 1/2 kg
Water -5 liter
Yeast - 1 tbsp
- Clean & chop the carrots and boil with 5 liters of water.
- Transfer this to a bharani or a big glass bottle and add lime & orange juice & peel. (Cut the orange & lime in half, and extract the juice, using a citrus fruit juicer. Remove the orange peel and scrape off any white pith from the inside. Chop up the peel and mix it with the carrot mixture).
- Then add sugar. When the mixture becomes cool, add raisins, whole wheat and yeast.
- Tie the bottle with a clean cloth and keep aside the mixture for 3 weeks.
- Stir this mixture everyday for 5 minutes.
- After 3 weeks strain the mixture to a clean bottle and keep this mixture again for 3 more weeks untouched.
- After that slowly strain the upper part to small bottles and use.
- The peach colour of this wine will change to a richer whisky colour with aging!
- All the utensils & bottle should be clean & dry. If there is water the wine will become sour.
- Don't fill the bottle to the brink. Always leave 1/4 bottle empty.

Hello Swapna!!! I found your wonderful blog through Maria's blog when I was looking for homemade wine recipe. This carrot wine recipe is darn tempting!!! The clicks are awesome too. Now, I am planning to make carrot whisky/wine ASAP but the only problem is we dont get whole wheat here in Australia, instead we get cracked wheat - burgul. So please tell me whether I can use cracked wheat instead of whole wheat?ReplyDelete
Thanks Arti for visiting my blog and leaving a comment:)...Never tried it with cracked wheat... but I think you can use cracked wheat instead of whole wheat...please give it a try and let me know how you like it...ReplyDelete
Thanks Swapna for your reply!!ReplyDelete
Finally, after an intensive bit of Googling, I've been able to purchase couple of Kgs of whole wheat!!! :) So, will soon give this carrot whisky a go!! By the way, Date wine is already fermenting, which I hope will come out great too!!
Thanks for your inspiring words!!
Arti....that's so nice you got whole wheat!!! wow you already made dates wine too...waiting to hear abt the out come...Happy wine making dear :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like a real winner to me! I would love to try some.

Hi Swapna, i have already tried ur beetroot wine and it came out super duper. Now wish to try carrot wine too. so can u suggest how much is 1 ounce in terms of teaspoon measurement..ReplyDelete
Happy to hear Beetroot wine came out perfect :)... In this carrot wine you only needed 1 tablespoon of yeast... just edited the recipe...
Can u please explain to me how much is one ounce in terms of teaspoon measurement?? i already tried beetroot wine and was a grand success..ReplyDelete
G'day Swapna A few years ago now a Sri Lankan ex neighbour of mine made this DELICIOUS Carrot Wine Unfortunately for me I not only LOST the recipe but she also moved away THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS GREAT RECIPE my neighbour also made an equally delicious wine from PINE APPLE Do you have a recipe for a PINEAPPLE WINE PLEASE? Thank you in advance Good luck with you blogReplyDelete
Hi swapna, hw long should i boil the carrotsReplyDelete
about 5 to 10 mints on medium heatDelete
Hi Swapna, im staying in a remote place where we don't get oranges. I've got lemons though. So can I substitute orange juice for oranges? Or can I just leave them out? Or do I increase the amount of lemons? Anxiously waiting for your reply! The carrot s r ready! !ReplyDelete
Hi Sangeetha, sorry for the delay in replying. you can increase lemons if you don't get oranges.Delete
after boiling the carrot should i transfer the carrots too to the bharani or just the liquid.
other recipes asking to strain the liquid in 2nd stage.
by the way i made your beetroot and rice wine and both were hits.thank you
Yes you have to add carrots too to the bharani. Glad to hear you liked the beetroot and rice wine :)Delete
Hi Swapna, small clarification is it wine or whiskey?? I mean how do we take it? Straight like wine or add water or soda while having it. And what’s the alcohol percentage %?? Thank youReplyDelete
Hi, This is wine and you have to take it straight without adding anything. I am not sure about the alcohol contant, usually it is 12% in wines.Delete
Thanks for the reply ....you are the StarReplyDelete
