In a bid to help gin fans get ready for the onset of autumn and winter, supermarket chain Aldi has announced the launch of its first ever gingerbread gin liqueur.

The brand announced the new gin as part of plans to increase its gin and gin liqueur offering by 60 per cent this autumn, as the country’s thirst for the spirit continues to grow – with a whopping 12,500 bottles being bought every day.

As part of its biggest gin and gin liqueur range yet, the supermarket will be making the Gingerbread gin liqueur (£9.99), available in stores and online from 1st October.

The liqueur is described as being characterised by “warming notes of ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and orange” and the team say it is best enjoyed with a “splash of tonic water or simply served neat over ice”.

The new expression follows the launch of Aldi’s popular Passionfruit Gin Liqueur (£9.99) in July – which sold out in just two days.

Both the Passionfruit Gin Liqueur and the firm’s Pink Gin (£10.99) are also set to return this autumn – available in stores and online from October 1st.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “Gin continues to be immensely popular amongst our shoppers, so we’re delighted to be offering our biggest range ever, just in time for the festive season.

“At Aldi, we pride ourselves on innovation, and the launch of these exciting new products is a real testament to the hard work of our UK based buying team, who work incredibly closely with suppliers to bring great-value, quality spirits to our shelves.”

Sam Caporn, Aldi’s wine expert, said: “The gin bubble is yet to burst, and it’s fantastic that shoppers can turn to Aldi for award-winning, great quality bottles that won’t break the bank.

“The brand new Gingerbread Gin Liqueur is not only deliciously on-trend, but its a brand new festive tipple, that is sure to delight gin lovers this festive season!“
