Where can I buy Black Currant Juice?

Black currant juice (combined with my own stock) was recommended to me as a substitute for red wine in receipes, when I posted a question on another CH board. Does anyone know where I can purchase black currant juice in the Philadelphia area?

  1. The Shop 'n' bag in Dublin has it, so it must be all over. It's in the refrigerated section with the specialty drinks. It's high in antioxidants, so if I were you I'd check the nearest health food store/ Wegmans/ Whole Foods-type place.

    1. I bought black currant juice at Pathmark. In my store it was near the ethnic foods.
      I mixed it with vodka for a faux creme de cassis for a plum tart.
      Good luck.

      1. Bell's Market in NE Philly..many varieties and much cheaper than you would elsewhere..

        1. I think I have seen it at Trader Joes.

          1. You can find Ribena brand Black Currant Juice in the British section of the International Food aisles at Wegman's

              In my experience, Ribena is HIGHLY sweetened. Perhaps there is an unsweetened variety, but please check before using.
