‘Usually sangria is s**t wine, but we’ve made a high end version,’ Kyle explained with his trademark bluntness.

Kyle has always disliked the taste of alcohol, but insists that his own signature sangria will appeal to people just like him who aren’t typically big boozers.
‘I don’t usually like alcohol, I find the taste disgusting, but my sangria is so easy to drink. Even if you don’t like alcohol, you’ll love this,’ he said.
While Nueva Sangria is currently only available to purchase online, Kyle revealed the early response has been ‘fantastic’ and he is already in talks to get the product into liquor stores and bars across the country.
