When it comes to stocking up on a few Christmas tipples, Aldi have got it seriously sorted. The fantastic Organic Prosecco and Costellore Prosecco are two of our tried and tested favourites. You can snap up a Magnum for a mere £13.99, and the 40-year-old Tawny port is a steal at £34.99. The new Haysmith’s gin selection features fruity flavours such as Pink Grapefruit & Rose and Spiced Apple & Ginger, and there’s a very festive Sloe & Elderberry Gin from The Infusionist. Cheers!
Organic Prosecco, £7.99
Eco-friendly fizz sourced from 150-hectare estate, 30km north-east of Venice. Grown with no pesticides or herbicides used in the vineyard, the grapes are predominately handpicked and gently pressed to ensure only the highest quality of juice is used. The winery is also committed to using renewable energy wherever possible.
Haysmith’s Pink Grapefruit & Rose Gin, 70cl, £14.99
Costellore Prosecco Rosé, £6.49
The first UK supermarket to launch its own Prosecco Rosé. An excellently balanced, aromatic wine made from Italian Glera and Pinot Noir grapes, with fine, long-lasting bubbles. On the nose enjoy floral aromas, whilst the palate offers a mix of summer fruits with a hint of strawberry and peach. To best enjoy serve at 6-8 degrees C.
Costellore Prosecco Magnum, £13.99
This Prosecco Magnum is a fantastic wine for any occasion. It makes a great aperitif, and it’s the perfect match for an appetiser or main course of fish.
Fletcher’s 40-Year-Old Tawny Port, £34.99
A characterful Port with the olive and ochre hues of the very oldest oak-matured Ports. Rich in powerful and complex nutty aromas, spiced notes and hints of warm roasted coffee and cinnamon come through from its prolonged oak ageing. This delicious tipple also joins the Fletcher’s 10 Year Tawny Port 4.5L bottle which is back in stock following high demand retailing at £99.99; the equivalent of a jeroboam of champagne, or 6 regular bottles.
Haysmith’s Spiced Apple & Ginger Gin (70cl, £14.99)
This Spiced Apple & Ginger Gin brings a classic feel to contemporary sipping. Combined with flavours of sweet apple and spicy cinnamon, it marries perfectly with a light tonic and apple garnish. Deliciously warming, this tipple is a nostalgic reminder of a classic homemade apple pie.
