With gin still the UK's hottest trending spirit, Aldi has teamed up with a Scottish distiller to launch a new range of convenient canned pre-mixed gin cocktails. 

The exclusive cocktails have been produced by St Andrews-based Eden Mill and are made using three different gins from the Aldi-exclusive ‘Botanical Project’ range.

According to the Aldi team, the ready-to-drink cans have been created using the “perfect mixer” to create a refreshing drink that’s “ideal for a quick outdoors cocktail this summer”.

The three offerings, which include Plum and Pink Grapefruit Gin with Tonic, Chilli and Ginger Gin with Ginger Ale, or a Traditional Gin with fresh Berries and Tonic (all 5% ABV), will be available in stores across Scotland.

Priced at just £1.79, the cans are also set to go on sale in Aldi stores in England and Wales from early June.

Paul Miller, owner of Eden Mill, said: “Our new range of ready-to-drink gin cocktails created exclusively for Aldi match three of our popular Botanical Project gins with their ideal mixer to create the perfect serve in a can. Whether you’re a fan of the traditional gin and tonic or want to try one of our fruit and spicy alternatives, our new ready-to-drink gin cocktails are sure to hit the spot this bank holiday weekend.”

Graham Nicolson, group buying director at Aldi Scotland, stated the chain are proud supporters of Scotland’s craft gin industry and are always looking for “unique new products” to add to their Scottish range, he said: “From BBQs to nights in with friends, these premium gin cocktails from Eden Mill are a great way for our customers to try some of these innovative new gins from the Eden Mill Botanical Project.”
