Cat Wine: The drink that has cats pouncing for joy

Created three years ago by animal lover Brandon Zavala, Cat Wine was born while he was working at an animal food company and discovered a hole in the market. ‘We feed our pets gourmet food and fancy treats,’ he said, ‘but we have no options in the recreational beverage department’.
To help bridge the social gap between us and our furry friends, Zavala started Apollo Peak – named for his eldest cat Apollo – and began testing recipes out in his kitchen. Eventually he had a solid product, managed to get funding and has been delighting cat owners the world over ever since.
The Wine. For Cats.
People have preferred types of wine, so why shouldn’t cats also have a variety of options to fit every palate? Apollo Peak shares that sentiment and so offers several kinds of kitty vino: Pinot Meow, MosCATo, White Kittendel Rosé, Catbernet, and Purrsecco.
Every bottle is non-alcoholic, grape-free and is made using only organic and natural ingredients. Pinot Meow was the first of the bunch to hit the market. Its ingredients are few and simple: filtered water, organic catnip, and red beet color. You know your pet is in good hands when you can pronounce every item that goes into the product.
The other “wines” have similar ingredients, swapping out catnip with valerian root to create the Catbernet, for example, or using golden beets instead of red beets to obtain the yellow color for the MosCato.
Does your pet prefer the bubbles? No problem. They also sell Feline Pawrier Cat Champagne in both chicken and salmon flavors. And if you like to get down with something a little harder, your feline can keep up with The Meowgarita or The Meowtini, depending on the kind of night you two crazy cats are looking to have.
