There are very few things that could make a hot tub even better than it already is, but a hot tub filled with wine is one of them.
A spa in England is creating the ultimate hot tub experience by offering a “Mulled Wine Spa,” and yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Guests of Shrigley Hall in Cheshire will be able to soak in a mulled wine-filled hot tub, take advantage of several mulled wine-themed treatments, and throw back a few glasses of the iconic Christmas drink while they’re at it.
The tub will be filled with traditional mulled Burgundy wine and kept at 98.6 degrees. The idea is that your pores will open, releasing toxins, and allowing your skin to absorb the tannins of the mulled wine. The wine’s ingredients, like orange, cinnamon, and star anise, supposedly provide a high level of antioxidants to make for a pretty solid detox. The spa experience also includes a 45-minute frankincense massage and a body scrub blending the aromas of brown sugar, cinnamon, and orange.
According to spa firm SpaSeekers, the wine spa can increase blood flow, improve cardiac health, boost circulation, soften your skin, and reduce inflammation — not to mention the obvious benefit of pure relaxation.
Prices for the spa start at $80 per person, and can soon be booked on the official website.
