The Bacchus Wine in Final Fantasy IV.

A mystical draught said to spout forth endlessly from an enchanted fount. Only consumable by knowledgeable salve-makers, it brings out the latent powers of the drinker, allowing them to exceed their normal physical capacities. As a side-effect, however, it induces obliviousness to one's surroundings and a loss of control, as if the imbiber were in a severe state of inebriation.

Description

In the original version, Bacchus's Wine has 50% chance of inflicting the target with Berserk. It can be purchased from all shops for 120 gil after reaching certain points in the story.

Three can be obtained from the bazaar by selling Tyrant Hide x2. Two are given as a reward for defeating the Elite Mark Behemoth King. One is given as a reward from Montblanc for defeating Fury. Varying amounts can be won as prizes from the Balfonheim Port Footrace. It drops from Great Malboro, Serpent, Necrophobe, Cassie, Reaver, High Reaver and Bangaa Pirate. It can be stolen from Bomb, Danbania, Bull Danbania, Hybrid Gator and Gizamaluk. It can be poached from Wyvern and Bell Wyvern. It can be found in treasure coffers in the Mosphoran Highwaste.

The "Behemoth" class enemies are fond of using the item to inflict Berserk on themselves, making their attacks even more devastating.

In the Zodiac versions, the item is guaranteed to inflict the Berserk status to the target unless the target is immune to it, making it effective against enemies that spam spells, like Ixion.

Final Fantasy XIV[edit | edit source]

Bacchus's wine is a legendary wine relevant to the quest "It Won't Work" at Wineport and a few quests thereafter. It is made from Bacchus Grapes, a hybrid of various grape species. The Calamity nearly eradicated the wine, grapes and all, and only a few bottles remain. Having been struck blind in a battle with Titan, Shamani Lohmani found renewed purpose upon tasting the wine, and now devotes his life to wine making.

Final Fantasy Tactics[edit | edit source]

Bacchus Wine is not an item, but is mentioned in the errand "Lilith's Libation":

Bacchus Winery's most popular product is Bacchus Liqueur, an incredibly sweet drink made from bacchus seeds, ad it was the reason for the attacks on the company's wains. What was thought to be the work of bandits was actually that of monsters drawn to the sweet smell. We defeated them and their leader Lilith, ensuring that Ivalicians could again partake in Bacchus's blessing.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Bacchus (also known as "Dionysus") is the Greco-Roman God of wine, vineyards, theater, and insanity. His worshipers would become intoxicated and go off on wild, crazed orgies of revelry.

In Japanese the item is called Bacchus's Sake. Sake is an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin that is made from fermented rice, and is sometimes referred to as as a form of rice wine by English-speaking countries, although technically sake is closer to beer than wine.
