How to Age Nectar in The Sims 4: Horse Ranch

The best way to age nectar is to buy a Rancher’s Stackable Nectar Storage Rack for 300 Simoleons. Each rack stores up to 13 bottles of nectar, allowing you to age multiple at once. You can interact with and open the storage rack to view information about your nectar or collect your bottles after they age.

If you don’t have a nectar storage rack, you can age your bottles by placing them in a basement. While this is less effective than the storage rack, it’s a great way to save money if you have the space to store your bottles!

How to Make Nectar in The Sims 4: Horse Ranch

To get your hands on some nectar and begin aging it, you’ll first have to buy a Rootin’ Fruit’n Nectar Maker in the build menu’s Hobbies & Skills section for 350 Simoleons. From here, place it anywhere on your lot and click Purchase Basic Ingredients to find a list of available items to turn into nectar. Alternatively, if your Sim is an avid gardener, you may already have access to these items.

Once you buy the required ingredients for your nectar, interact with the machine again and select “Craft Nectar” before choosing any unlocked drink. After your Sim happily stomps around the bucket, a bottle of nectar will appear in your inventory for you to sell immediately or age in the storage rack.
