Aldi Gin Has Won The Top Prize At Industry Awards

Aldi Gin Has Won The Top Prize At Industry Awards

Aldi booze has done it again, scooping three awards at the recent Spirits Business Gin Masters.

Greyson's Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin, which costs just £14.99, faced off against fancy gins that were twice the price to win the 'masters' title - the highest award the event gives out.

Aldi spokesperson Julie Ashfield said: "It's an incredible achievement to be recognised for our gin range at such a prestigious competition. We've seen the trend for flavoured gins become increasingly popular over the last few years and we're thrilled to see that the quality of our products makes them stand out from the crowd with both our loyal customers and gin connoisseurs alike."

The company's impressive range of alcohol has been awarded 24 medals in 2019, with its gins also earning gold and silver at International Spirits Challenge.

Earlier this year, Aldi spiced rum won a gold medal at the Spirits Business Rum & Cachaça Masters.

Its Sea Dog Premium Spiced Rum costs just £16.99 a bottle and was honoured among a bunch of much pricier rums including Anchor Spirits Ireland Spike Island Rum (£29.98), Atom Brands Rumbullion! Navy Strength rum (£38.99), Famille Naud Master Distillers Hidden Loot Spiced Rum (£28.95), Farman & Son Diablesse Clementine Caribbean Spiced Rum (£31.95) and Proof Drinks Cut Overproof Rum (£38.36).

Amy Hopkins, deputy editor at The Spirits Business, said: "Aldi once again secured some impressive accolades in The Spirits Business's Rum & Cachaça Masters," adding that Sea Dog Premium Spiced Rum received praise for 'its buttery sweetness'.

Aldi was on a rum-based-winning streak, too, as it also won gold for its Infusionist Coconut & Vanilla Rum Liqueur Gold in the Rum Liqueur category, and its Old Hopking Spiced Rum, which is just £10.49 a bottle, also won a silver medal.

Amy explained: "Old Hopking Spiced Rum impressed the judging panel with its balanced sweet and herbaceous flavour."

As well as being a favourite with the judging panel, the rums are pretty damn popular with customers, too, as Aldi sold a whopping two million bottles of the stuff during 2018.

Well played, Aldi.
