Aldi’s cherry blossom gin is 50% cheaper than the leading brand

By now, we all know (and love) Aldi for its bargain dupes of leading products and brands. The beauty aisle of the budget supermarket is packed full of amazing dupes, often at less than half the price of their market-leading counterparts.

If you take a walk down the drinks and spirits aisle you’ll also notice a lot of Aldi alcohol dupes. Having been awarded Best Spirits Supermarket 2022 at the People’s Choice Awards, Supermarket Own Branded Spirits Range of the Year at the International Spirits Festival and crowned Wine Supermarket of the Year 2021 at the International Wine & Spirits Competition, Aldi knows what it’s doing when it comes to alcoholic tipples.

From bottles of gin based on Hendrick’s, Gordon’s and Mirabeau to Aldi’s versions of Grey Goose vodka, Pimm’s and Aperol, join us as we stock up our drinks trolley with all these Aldi alcohol dupes (and save ourselves money in the process).
