Discount supermarket chain Aldi has revealed more good news for fans of fizz, after its 'hangover free' Prosecco hit shelves to rave reviews.
Coming in at wallet-friendly £7.99, Aldi’s extra dry organic Prosecco is made from farmed grapes that contain ‘no pesticides or herbicides’.
While not strictly a cure for a sore head after a night of drinking, the tipple’s lack of impurities is thought to lessen the impact of a hangover.
Tweeting about its new organic range recently, the supermarket made a nod to the drink’s ‘hangover proof’ qualities, writing: ‘We’re raising a glass this Organic September to our range of delicious, organic wine. Apparently they’re hangover-proof… better have a glass to find out.’
The product has received 174 reviews on Aldi’s website, with an impressive average rating of 5 stars.
One reviewer raved: ‘This has become a firm favourite in our household and I can’t rate it highly enough for flavour, finish and value for money! We always make sure to have a couple of bottles in stock at home.’
While another added: ‘Enjoyed this with fish and chips watching the sunset over a Cornish beach. Absolutely fantastic even when not fully chilled. Will buy again and recommend it to all our friends.’
The launch comes almost 12 months after supermarket Lidl launched its ‘hangover-free’ organic Prosecco last October.
The product – also priced at £7.99 – proved so popular that a bottle flew off the shelves every 20 seconds. And demand proved so strong that the supermarket restocked the product in March this year, tweeting: ‘That’s right, our Organic Prosecco is back!’
Detailing more about the science behind ‘hangover free’ Prosecco, Lidl’s master of wine, Richard Bampfield, said at the time:
‘We’ve all had that shocking wine hangover. This is sometimes attributed to the sulphite preservatives used in wine to keep them fresher for longer.
‘Generally, organic wine producers use a lower level of sulphites in the production process, which means they are less likely to contribute to hangovers.’
We’re raising a glass to this news!
