NEW YORK, March 4 (UPI) -- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess announced Thursday the release of his own pinot noir branded beverage, Pinot by Tituss.

Inspired by his character Titus Andromedon's popular ballad from the hit Netflix comedy entitled "Peeno Noir," the drink is now available for order on pinotbytituss.com.

"To be enjoyed by all the fabulous Kings and Kweens. Pinot makes things fun. xo Tituss," Burgess wrote on Instagram alongside a video of the actor pouring himself a glass.

"You guys are fabulous, thank you for all the Pinot by Tituss support. xo Tituss," he wrote in a separate post accompanied by an animated gif highlighting the drink's name and font.

The $24.99 per bottle wine is described as having "great acidic balance, a medium body and is ready to drink now," according to an official press release. "On the nose, aromas of dried fruits, slate, subtle rosemary, coriander and roses lead to flavors of plum and black cherry cola," reads the release. "Tones of toasted oak and leather delicately dance on the palate."

Burgess is set to return as Titus Andromedon alongside stars Ellie Kemper (Kimmy Schmidt) and Jane Krakowski (Jacqueline Voorhees) when Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt returns for Season Two on Netflix April 15.

The streaming service released the first teaser trailer for Season Two in February which paid homage to New York Fashion Week. The cast is seen strutting their stuff on an imaginary runway while some of the show's famous lines such as "Hashbrown No Filter" and "Stranger Danger Ranger" appear across the screen.
