This Colour Wine Will Give You The Worst Hangover

Red, wine or rose? Science has finally answered...

When choosing your favourite tipple, what do usually consider?

Taste? Price? How much of a killer hangover it’s going to give you the next day? We’ll own up to all three, but particularly the last one, which is why we’re THRILLED to announce that we now officially know which colour wine is the most hangover-inducing.

It’s an argument that’s been going since the beginning of time – some think red wine is the clear winner when it comes to bringing on a cracking headaches, whilst others think white wine is way worse thanks to all that acid nestling in your stomach 12 hours later. Dreamy.

But a new study conducted by Professor Steve Allsop from the National Drug Research Institute in Perth, has found out which is the worst culprit once and for all…

Basically, the more congeners in a drink, the worse your hangover. And lots of congeners = a darker coloured liquid. So yep, you guessed it – red wine is the killer.

Congeners are a ‘toxic byproduct of the fermenting process’ that hang around in your body, and that’s why you feel like death the day after a drinking binge.

So basically, try drinking cocktails with lighter hues, or more of the white stuff, if you don’t want a stonker of a headache the next morning. Or, you know, you could try not going crazy and avoid binge-drinking all together…

But we’ll leave that one up to you.
