    We’re slowly but surely coming to realise that you don’t have to spend a fortune to be able to afford excellent drinks, which is good news all round, let’s be honest.

    Take the Aldi Rosé wine for example, a Côtes De Provence 2016 bottle that has just won a silver model at the International Wine Challenge, and costs just £5.99.

    Now if you’re a gin and tonic lover, you’ll be pleased to hear you can enjoy a tasty glass of your favourite tipple (and hay fever cure apparently) for a song.

    It certainly looks like Aldi is on a roll, because its £9.97 bottle of gin has just been voted one of the best in the world (the fourth medal it has won this year). The Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin won a gold medal in the dry gin sub-category at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.

    The gin has been described as ‘light and crispy, with a touch of spice and juniper’ and is said to be best served with tonic. Obviously.

    This is no mean feat, considering it was up against the likes of Foxhole London Dry Gin, which costs £39.95, almost four times the price.

    In case you’re more of a Kir Royal person, you’ll be interested to hear that Aldi’s Créme de Cassis also won a gold medal, so you know, just pick your poison.

    Now excuse us while we make a little supermarket trip.
