The countdown to Christmas is on. Yes, we’re starting early this year – but why not? When there are so many festive treats on the market already, why wouldn’t we start celebrating the most wonderful time of the year two months before the big day?
We’ve already got a list as long as our arm of things we want for Christmas. There are Prosecco Christmas crackers for a boozy adult take on the tradition, there’s a Christmas Colin the Caterpillar to add to your food shop and you can package all your gifts with this personalised wrapping paper that has your own face on (the ultimate present, no question).
And if there’s one supermarket getting in the spirit of things, it’s Aldi. They’re selling their wine advent calendar yet again and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.
But they’ve also got your back if you’re throwing a party and are worried that the bubbles will run out. They’re now re-selling their six-litre bottle of Prosecco, and we are so in.
Aldi’s supersized Methuselah of Prosecco holds the equivalent of eight 75cl bottles, meaning no need for a frantic trip to restock mid-soiree.
The tipple is light, fun and frothy with ‘notes of parma violets, ripe pear and papaya, as well as having a soft and well-balanced palate’.
Sounds good to us.
The enormous bottle goes on sale online on 1st November and will cost £99.99. Considering that Aldi’s wine range has been awarded over 150 medals by international awarding bodies, we’re certain that this six-litre Prosecco bottle is going to sell out pretty quickly. In fact, last year it sold out in just 24 hours.
Customers are only permitted to buy one per person so put the date in your diary, and prepare yourself for a very merry Christmas.
