Shoppers celebrating Burns Night this year will be keen to (Glas)-go to Aldi as the supermarket announces the launch of a classic Scottish speciality at a bargain price.
The McIntosh of Strathmore Burns Box (£3.79, 900g) provides the ultimate Scottish supper to mark the annual celebrations of the country’s renowned poet, Robert Burns. The meal kit for two includes a helping of deliciously hearty haggis and a tray of creamy mashed tatties, accompanied with a side of traditional mashed neeps. The kit also includes a mouth-wateringly rich whisky sauce, completing the Burns Night feast in one easy to serve box for the 25th January celebrations.
No Burns Night would be complete without a traditional Scottish tipple. Aldi’s Highland Earl Blended Scotch Whisky Special Reserve (£10.79, 70cl) is sure to go down a treat when toasting to Robert Burns this year, delicious served straight or as part of a classic cocktail for a truly authentic Scottish inspired evening!
Aldi’s Burns Night Box will be available in stores from 20th January.
It is no secret that Brits love a pint. In fact, 1.1 billion pints of extra beer was sold in the last year. To satisfy the nation’s beer lovers at what is set to be one of the most celebratory weekends of the year, Aldi has announced the launch of four limited-edition British-themed craft beers (£1.69, 440ml) in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
With a choice of Session IPA, Session Pale Ale, British Ale and British Lager, all beers are packaged in stylish limited-edition prints featuring Big Ben, a Tower of London Guard, Nelson on his Column, and the Queen’s corgis! Shoppers can crack open a cold one and feel patriotic with every sip this bank holiday.
