How to Age Nectar in Sims 4

Aged like fine wine...or nectar!

Aging Nectar is yet another creative activity that your Sim can master in The Sims 4, just like songwriting. This one, however, comes with a huge profit as long as you age your bottles of Nectar properly.

Nectar is essentially wine in The Sims 4, and like real wine, it can make some real money. The process is deceptively simple: just store it in a rack and wait!

To age your own Nectar in The Sims 4, you'll need to have some Nectar bottles made. Then, you can store your crafted Nectar bottles in the Rancher's Stackable Nectar Storage Rack. From there, all you need to do is wait for the Nectar to finish aging. To check on how much the nectar has aged, click on the storage rack and choose Open. This will let you hover over all stored bottles and see how much they've aged.

How to make Nectar in The Sims 4

To make Nectar in The Sims 4, you need a nectar-making machine from Build/Buy mode called the Rootin' Fruit'n Nectar Maker. Place the maker, then choose to Purchase Basic Ingredients. At lower levels, you'll only be able to make Grape and Apple Nectar, so buy at least three of either ingredients (or you what you have if you already have these fruits available). Once you have those, click on the machine and Craft Nectar. Your Sim will complete this and then store the Nectar bottle in their inventory.

Can you speed up Nectar Aging in The Sims 4?

Beyond placing Nectar in the storage rack for it, there is an additional way to speed up the process of aging in The Sims 4. If you want Nectar to age even faster, build a basement (or use the one you have if already built). Move your Rancher's Stackable Nectar Storage Rack down into the basement with the Nectar bottles inside. This will increase the speed of aging by 10%. You could also download a mod, like Faster Nectar Making by ClaudiaSharon.

Which Nectar is the best to sell in The Sims 4?

Vitality Nectar will by and far make you the most money in The Sims 4, but it does require Spinach and Death Flower to make. If you're looking for the most lucrative and easy-to-access Nectar option, we'd recommend going with Grape Nectar, as it still makes plenty of money. Of course, both need to be aged to maximize their profit.
