14th December 2021

Christmas at Aldi

It’s December, Christmas is around the corner and after another troublesome year, let’s make this Christmas the best yet, enjoy every moment of your Christmas shopping, try not to leave it to the last minute, although I know some of you will, but it doesn’t matter, Aldi has you covered, with a delicious array of Christmas party food, chocolates, treats and meats to choose from, as well as an amazing selection of spirits and liqueurs to enjoy over the festive season.

How much do you know about your local supermarket? Here’s a little bit about Aldi you might not have known: Aldi was founded in 1946 in the city of Essen in Germany, it was created by two brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht, as of today there are now over 11,000 stores spread across 20 different countries. Aldi are going to invest over £1.3 billion by 2023 with the goal to open 100 new stores by 2023. Over 900 of their stores are in the UK.

Most of us love a good drink over the holiday’s, whether it be some bubbly, gin, rum, whiskey, or eggnog, but what about some cocktails, with it being the Christmas season, now is the perfect time to create some Christmas Fizz Cocktails, so let’s look at Aldi’s selection. When I say that Aldi has a great selection of spirits and liqueurs to choose from this Christmas, I seriously mean it, just take a look at their Gin section. They have so many craft gins which would be a delight to enjoy over Christmas, like Spiced Plum and Clementine, Mulled Berry and Cranberry and Spiced Biscuit to name a few.

As many of us have different tastes, I’ve got here a Gin, Rum and Whiskey, I’ve picked a bottle of Prosecco and created 3 different unique Christmas Cocktails using Aldi’s Gin, Rum and Whisky,  if any of them appeal to you, you’ll be able to enjoy them over Christmas.
