A selection of the best Aldi gins for 2022

From dry gin to fruit-infused gin, here are the best Aldi gins to buy online for 2022 - all of which are well under £20.

With the popularity of gin continuing to grow over the years, more and more retailers and leading supermarkets are jumping on the gin bandwagon. According to Aldi an average of 5,000 bottles of gin are sold every hour – that’s an incredible 12,500 bottles per day. In 2019, it was estimated that an average of 4.6 million people in the UK were 'heavy' gin consumers and Statista (opens in new tab) has predicted that the amount of gin bought in the UK for 2022 will continue to grow by 9% compared to 2021.

"Given that gin is the base of many popular cocktails including Tom Collins, Martini, and Pimm's, it's no surprise that it remains one of the most popular spirits to drink," says Senior Food Writer, Jessica Ransom (opens in new tab). "If you love gin for its dry, refreshing characteristics, watch out when buying flavoured varieties. A lot of fruit-flavoured gins are actually gin liqueurs and so while they benefit from a lower ABV, they are often a lot sweeter and can taste sickly or syrupy."

Whether you want to drink it straight, pair it with a bit of fizz or turn it into classic gin cocktails (opens in new tab), we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gin to suit at Aldi.

Another added; "We love this gin. It’s very much like a certain other blue-styled gin. It’s easy to drink, with no overpowering strong flavours, and a clean finish. Works with any tonic."

Don't like tonic water so I cant comment on that." Another added; "I mixed it with Aldi's fresh lemon juice and carbonated water. It tasted like a cross between a lemon meringue and lemon sorbet. You can drink the whole bottle mixed and not get hungover. Beautifully lovely and refreshing drink." Rated an average of 4.3 stars out of 5.
