Post Malone has launched his own brand of rosé .
Maison No. 9 (House No. 9 to you and me) is named after the rapper's favourite tarot card, the nine of swords, which represents overcoming challenges.
The idea came about following a trip to France's Provence region and is set to hit the shelves next month.
According to reports, it took 50 blends before the rapper and his team found a tint of pink that they were happy with. It is made up of Grenache (45 percent), Cinsault (25 percent), Syrah (15 percent), and Merlot (15 percent).
Speaking about the new venture, Post said he was confident that his fans were going to enjoy it.
He said: "Rosé is for when you want to get a little fancy. It's a nice switch up and I have been thinking about doing my own wine for a while.
"It was great to work with Global Brand Equities because they saw the vision and we got to do some super cool stuff. Maison No. 9 goes down smooth, and you're all going to love it!"
According to its tasting notes,"inviting aromas of freshly picked fruit, such as ripe pineapple, pear and strawberry meet hints of sweet French desserts once uncorked.
"The clean, dry, crisp finish is balanced and round with a texture that is mouthwatering and savoury, perfect for drinking on its own or with a variety of dishes."
The continental tipple will be available to buy at some point in June, with a variety of sizes on offer: 750mL, 1.5mL and 3L which, according to reports, will set you back $21.99 (£18), $44.99 (£36.85), and $89.99 (£73.71), respectively.
As well as coming up with new business ideas, Post has also used his lockdown time to do what he does best, music.
Last month (April), he livestreamed a Nirvana tribute concert to raise money for coronavirus relief.
Joined by Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, Nick Mack on guitar and Brian Lee on bass, the rapper smashed his way through a 15-song tribute set, all with full backing from Krist Novoselic - former Nirvana bassist.
Wearing dresses, in tribute to the man himself, Kurt Cobain, the four got together on a live-streamed YouTube gig which has so far raised more than $2.7m of a target of $7.5m to go towards the United Nations Foundation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Google has said it will match the donation up to $5m.
Speaking during the show, Post said: "What's up, party people. We're gonna play some Nirvana for you, and have some fun, and hopefully I don't f*** up."
