ABOUT Amla Wine | Indian Gooseberry Wine RECIPE

This is a traditional recipe of amla wine made by inspiration from our friends in the south. My husband got the recipe while working in the plantations at Wynaad. Delicately warm and flavourful, with a lingering sweet aftertaste, Amla wine has all the health benefits of amla.

Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. 1 ¼ kg amla (or 100 medium size amla)
  2. 1 kg white crystalline sugar
  3. 4 liters water.
  4. You will also need-
  5. Two glass jars of 4 liters capacity each
  6. A wooden spatula
  7. A glass funnel
  8. Muslin Cloth
  9. And wine bottles to store your wine


  1. Wash amla and wipe them dry.
  2. Take water and sugar in a large container. Bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat. Let it cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Take the glass jars. Put 50 amla in each jar.
  4. Add equal quantity of sugar solution to both the jars. Amla will float in the solution and the colour of the amla will change.
  5. Leave the jars open till solution comes to room temperature.
  6. Put the lid loosely around the mouth of the bottle.
  7. Stir the mixture every day with a wooden ladle. You may fix up a time to stir. Stir for 4 to 5 minutes.
  8. Stir the mixture every day for 20 days. The wine needs 20 days to ferment
  9. In case If you see any fungal growth on the top layer, carefully remove and discard.
  10. On the 21st day, pass the mixture through a muslin cloth and transfer to wine bottles. You will be needing a funnel for transferring wine to bottles. Discard amla.
  11. The wine is ready. It is recommended that you keep it to mature for at least 3 months to 1 year. Store wine in a cupboard.
  12. The taste and colour of the wine improves with time. In one year, from whitish colour, the wine becomes sparkling honey colour. It has a warm feel to it and beautiful lingering sweet aftertaste of amla.
