Aldi are bringing out a glittery candy cane gin – and it’s very affordable!


December is a couple of months away, so we think it’s totally acceptable to treat yourself to some festive food and drink.

And for those looking for something new to try, Aldi have just launched a very Christmassy gin - and we can’t wait to try it!

Aldi have just announced a new candy cane flavoured gin liqueur, which is red in colour and filled with glitter. So it's sure to be a show-stopper for any Christmas parties you might be hosting.

Just think of all the beautiful shimmering cocktails you could create with a sparkly drink. It could even give the classic G&T the festive glow up that it deserves!

The Infusionist Small Batch Candy Cane Gin Liqueur tastes like peppermint, but also has hints of vanilla to offset it. The alcohol volume is 20 per cent - so whether you prefer gin liqueurs straight or with a mixer, we’re sure this gin will suit everyone.

Shoppers can pick up a 50cl bottle of the festive gin for £9.99. It’s available to buy at Aldi from October 1st, although it's not clear whether it'll be on sale online too.

So if you’re keen to grab one, your best bet is to head to your local Aldi and buy it in-store, before other shoppers get there first. We can imagine it’ll be very popular!

For a festive non-alcoholic option, Coca Cola have announced their Clementine Diet Coke which combines a sweet citrus flavour with the classic diet drink just in time for Christmas.

And if you have a sweet tooth, M&S have just announced two delicious desserts which will be the perfect finishing touch to any dinner party. One of them is a very familiar face too…

So with so much available to try this year, we just want Christmas to arrive already. It's the perfect excuse to indulge on our favourite food and drink, which is something we can all get behind.

Will you be trying the new festive Aldi gin? Let us know if you get your hands on a bottle!
