People have been mixing wine into their ink since the Middle Ages—and De Atramentis brings even more revelry to the written word with this collection of scented inks inspired by your favorite wine, beer, and spirits. From Chianti to Kölsch to Absinthe to Bordeaux, these inks show vibrant, concentrated colors and are formulated specifically for use with fountain pens. Based in Germany, De Atramentis takes its name from the term “atramentum,” which in ancient Rome referred to any black dyeing liquid, whether produced by an octopus or used by a scribe.
