Huge Queues Form Outside Lidl Stores For Prosecco Deal

Bank holiday weekends usually signal one thing. Not only a Friday and Saturday night tipple, but an excuse for a Sunday bender too.

However, with that comes the great luxury of three glorious lie-ins. Except if you live near a Lidl... or love Prosecco, that is.

Huge queues formed outside many Lidl stores in the UK this morning as shoppers hoped to cash in on the supermrket's Prosecco deal.

The offer was for a case of six bottles of Lidl own-brand Allini Prosecco which was for £20. That's an average of £3.33 per bottle.

Shoppers snapped pictures of the scenes outside many of the German-based supermarkets across the UK.

From Cardiff to Colchester, Liverpool to Newcastle, Sheffield to Stowmarket - the deal crunchers were out in force.

Within minutes of the stores opening, unsurprisingly, the discounted booze had sold out in many of the stores.

The drink is described by supermarket chain as having a 'fresh, pear-scented' taste, even if it is a 'little drier than some Prosecco's'.

The description continues: "High moreish. Very versatile, either on its own or with food. This has the clean, pear drop aromas characteristic of a good Prosecco and is light, crisp and fresh on the palate."

It's the latest in a long list of award winning alcoholic beverages from Lidl. Earlier this year, it launched a summer version of their award-winning gin.

The Hortus gin, retailing at £15.99, has hints of rosehip, hibiscus and fresh orange (posh or what?).

Aldi is also matching Lidl on some excellent drink choices too with the London Evening Standard recently ranking its Valdobbiadene Prosecco Spumante Superiore DOCG as the best on the market.

Lidl or Aldi? There's only one way find out..... FIIIIGGGHHTTT.

Well, maybe a Twitter exchange instead.
