We're always keen to hear about new alcoholic beverages that look as good as they taste, which is why we dying to make Unicorn Tear Rosé the latest addition to our wine rack.
The creation, hailing from wine innovator Gik Live, comes with a bright pink colour and shiny silver sparkles.
And the good news is that far from being packed with food colouring and fake glitter, it's actually all natural: the sparkle comes from natural mineral pigments and the pink hue is extracted from organic pigments in raspberries.
As for the taste, the sellers describe it as a medium sweet wine with hints of peach, fig, prune and ripe black fruits. It's thought to be best drank as an aperitif or with desserts, like carrot cake.
Gik Live even recommend drinking it alongside fish dishes such as sushi or oysters. Yum.
Maybe the best part is the packaging: a white label adorned with a colour cartoon unicorn. One thing's for sure, it'll certainly jazz up the drinks table at your next birthday party.
Retailing at £12.95 for a 75cl bottle online, the brains behind Unicorn Tear Rosé are maintaining the booze is made from actual unicorn tears, though we have our suspicions they're pulling our leg...
The rosé follows Gik Live's Blue Wine, the azure-coloured creation which ruffled the feathers of wineries in Europe.
The wine is designed for all people between 18 and 70 years old, and was born out of tiredness at the traditional wine industry by the founders in their native Spain.
The website reads: "When drinking Gik Blue, you are drinking something innovative. You're drinking the power to create your own rules. Thus, we are not trying to impose a way of drinking it.
"We will not tell you how pair it, where or when to have it. We do not require you to enroll in a tasting course or force you to study the bible oenology. Just enjoy it."
