£10 Bottle of Gin Beats Expensive Rivals at International Awards

A ten pound bottle of gin has beaten some of the most highly regarded brands in the world, including bottles five-times the price, at an international awards.

Experts awarded Aldi’s modestly priced Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin a Silver medal at the prestigious International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2013, ranking it alongside The London No.1 Gin, which sells for £35 at Harrods.

Famous mainstream brands such as Bombay Sapphire (£21.70), and artisan favourite Hendricks (£26.39) fell short in the eyes of the experts – with both awarded Bronze medals despite being more than twice as expensive as their Aldi rival.

Aldi’s Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin comes in 70cl bottles and is described as having a 'ripe, citrus aroma with rounded spice and a touch of juniper' and costs £9.65.

Tony Baines, MD Buying, said: "Our expert buyer works closely with some of the world's leading distilleries to enable us to deliver high quality Own Label spirits to our customers – so it is fantastic that our commitment to quality has been recognised by the ISC tasting panel.

“It’s safe to say we’re all in high spirits today – and we hope our customers will enjoy raising a glass of Gin & Tonic to our success.”

Other Aldi winners include two of its vodkas, which picked up Silver medals, whilst its amaretto, white rum and peach schnapps each scooped Bronze awards in the ‘liqueurs’ category.


Lovely Bubbly – The £13 Champagne That Experts Say Is Better Than The Big Brands

You can forget expensive champagne, according to experts who have ranked a £13 bubbly from Aldi above top price bottles from brands costing up to £117 more.

Aldi’s Champagne Veuve Monsigny by Philizot & Fils NV was given a silver medal in blind taste tests at the International Wine Challenge, dubbed the ‘The Wine Oscar’s. It beat bottles including Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2004 (£130) and Moët & Chandon Imperial NV (£32.99), both of which received bronze awards.

The budget bubbly was described as ‘classy and complex’ by the judges and offers an intense nose of baked apple, brioche and stone fruits, with gorgeous flavours of apples, red fruit and minerality on the palate.
This isn’t the first time an Aldi drink has caused a stir. Earlier this month Aldi’s Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin £9.65 (70cl), picked up silver at the International Spirits Challenge, beating established brands Bombay Sapphire and Hendrick’s.
Tony Baines, MD Buying, said: "At Aldi we believe that good quality and value are not mutually exclusive and these award wins support that belief, by showing you don’t need to pay superstar prices for super quality drinks.
“We’ll be raising a glass of our Champagne Veuve Monsigny by Philizot & Fils to toast our success today – and we hope our customers will enjoy doing the same the next time they are celebrating.”
In total Aldi drinks took away 29 medals and commendations, including Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G Valdobbiadene NV (75cl), which also took away silver, beating the more expensive Champagnes.


It’s a Corker, £3.59 Wine Sold at Aldi Wins International Award

£3.59 Own Label wine out-performs rivals at a fraction of the price.

You don’t need an expensive bottle of wine to impress dinner guests anymore, as a budget bottle costing just £3.59 has been named one of the world’s best by experts.
Supermarket Aldi’s own label red, Toro Loco Tempranillo, outshone expensive rivals costing up to eight times as much, in blind taste tests at the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) 2012. Judges awarded the budget bottle a Silver medal, describing it as ‘fruity, rounded and appealing’ with hints of ‘nice bright cherry’.
Tony Baines, MD Buying, said: "Our expert team of buyers works closely with some of the world's leading wineries to enable us to deliver high quality Own Label wines to our customers – so it is fantastic that our commitment to quality has been recognised by as prestigious a group as the IWSC tasting panel.
"We’ve always known our wine range has got a lot of bottle - and now it looks like the experts agree.”
The award winner was in expensive company, with other Silver medallists including a £31.15 Costa di Bussia Barolo Riserva DOCG 2005, and the esteemed Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvingon 2009, costing £30.
In total, Aldi picked up 18 medals at the awards, which are recognised as being some of the toughest in the wine industry.
