Tuesday 15th September: If you’re looking for a gold standard scotch whisky that doesn’t come with a golden price tag, we can officially say we have the beverage for you. Aldi’s Glen Marnoch Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (£16.49) has secured a gold medal in the prestigious International Spirits Challenge, scoring higher than an abundance of more costly whiskies from rivalling supermarkets including M&S and Co-op.
Taking home the same medal as those costing up to ten times as much, including the Spey Distillery Royal Choice (£170), Aldi’s own Scotch Whisky stood it’s ground in this round of the highland games.
The International Sprits Challenge is a global competition that pits a variety of popular spirits against each other in a series of taste tests. With 25 years of experience in tasting, comparing and assessing sprits to judge the best quality, taste and value, the Spirits Challenge has a world-renowned reputation.
Noted by the judges, this rustic highland whisky has subtle fruity and floral notes, which capture those classic elements of the Highland style.
This isn’t the first time Aldi’s whisky range has been given the seal of approval by experts. Since 2019 Aldi’s scotch whiskies have received 20 medals, including 7 golds, cleaning up in a host of renowned awards including the International Wine and Spirits Competition and The Spirits Business Awards.
If you fancy giving your tastebuds a slice of the highlife, head to an Aldi store or online at www.aldi.co.uk where you can buy this golden whisky or any of Aldi’s award-winning beers, wines and spirits.
