Fresh from breaking the Internet with the brand new McQueen colour changing gin, Aldi has unveiled even more fantastic news for gin lovers.

On Thursday 26 July, the supermarket will launch its first ever National Summer Gin Festival including a whole host of new gins to their shelves.

10 new products in total have joined Aldi’s spirits range including premium, craft and small batch gins. Shoppers will also be treated to glassware, garnishes and mixers.

So far, of course, the store has focused on spotlighting the best of Scottish gin.

2017 saw the launch of their first ever Scottish Gin Festival, followed swiftly by a bigger and better version in April of this year.

Both have been incredible success stories for the supermarket, with many gin fans from outside Scotland eager to get their hands on the new releases.

Now, however, it seems those prayers have been answered. Not only is this festival quite possibly the biggest yet, but gin lovers from across the UK can now enjoy too, in-store and, for the first time, online.*

Get the date in your diary gin fans, the hype is real.

Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
