An entrepreneur from the Chinese port city of Dalian has plans to make wine out of fermented fish. The company claims to already have orders from Japan and Russian in addition to Chinese orders.
BEIJING (Reuters) - The French used grapes, Russians fermented potatoes, Koreans put ginseng in their drink and Mexicans distilled cactus plants to make fiery tequila.

Now China is introducing fish wine.

Sun Keman, an entrepreneur in the northeastern port city of Dalian, has formed the Dalian Fisherman's Song Maritime Biological Brewery, with a plan to use his background in the fishing industry to make fish into wine.

Not sure I would want to see the tasting notes on that varietal: "A heavy bouquet, with hints of sardine, anchovy, and tuna. lingers on the palate for a strong finish" Strong indeed. I think investors should take a really close look at the business model before giving up any hard earned cash. Why stop at wine? I mean can a fish brandy or champagne be far behind?

Of course, this wouldn't be wine, it'd be a distilled liquor.

Funnily enough I have a bottle shapped like a fish called

"Pescevino" 'fish wine'!

Made from grapes tho.
