    Gin lovers, unite – Aldi is bringing us a gin festival this month and we couldn’t be more excited.

    The world’s obsession with gin shows no signs of slowing down, and the supermarket has decided to bring back the event for 2019. Better still, it’s happening on the bank holiday weekend.

    From 26th May, you’ll be able to get your hands on three new Aldi gins as well as gift packages and cocktail bottles.

    The range includes a Blackcurrant & Liquorice Gin and a Rhubarb Gin, both priced at £19.99, as well as a Raspberry & Elderflower Gin Liqueur for a bargain £9.99.

    The Rhubarb Gin is a mix of sweet rhubarb with citrus fruit flavours, while the Blackcurrant & Liquorice Gin combines blackcurrant and coriander flavours, sweetened with liquorice, citrus and almond.

    They’re also launching a number of pre-made gin cocktails, which include Berry Bramble, Citrus Fizz and Basil Smash flavours coming in at a very respectable £1.99 for 250ml. And if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the gin lover in your life, they’ll also be stocking s Flavoured Gin Tasting Pack and a Pink Gin Selection Pack, both £9.99.

    But we all know that your gin glass is just as important as the drink itself, and Aldi have you covered there too, selling four for £7.99.

    Tom Doorley, Aldi’s Drinks Expert said: ‘Aldi know more than a thing or two about gin. Just look at Aldi’s very own Irish craft gin, distilled in small batches by the Blackwater Distillery in County Waterford: Boyle’s is, by far, the best value Irish gin that you can buy.

    ‘But with Aldi’s nose for great gins, you can be sure that everything featured in the Gin Festival will be deliciously interesting and just a bit different.’

    Now let’s all keep our fingers crossed that the sun comes out bank holiday weekend…
