Celebrating the very best of the nation’s craft distillers, Lidl’s first ever Scottish Spirits Festival is hitting the shelves with a line-up of winter themed tipples, with prices starting at just £1.79.

The festival brings offers a decadent White Chocolate Vodka (£15.99, 70cl), crafted by the Carnoustie Distillery and infused with a sweet hint of white chocolate.

A must-try of the winter-themed festival is the new Shetland Reel Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (£19.99, 70cl) from Saxa Vord Distillery.

Served neat with a touch of water on the rocks, the whisky is an ideal warming drink this festive season.

With the trend for low alcohol spirits continuing to grow, CeroCero’s Non-Alcoholic Citrus Gin (£9.99, 70cl) brings the craft and flavour of gin, best served over crushed ice with tonic and fresh berries.

Not forgetting the gin lovers, Benromach Distillery’s seasonal Red Door London Dry Winter Edition (£23.99, 70cl) packs a festive punch while Pickering’s Gin Baubles (£15.99, 50cl) from Edinburgh’s Summerhall Distillery are the ultimate decoration for any gin fans' tree.
