Aldi's Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin has been named one of the best in the world

Aldi's £9.97 bottle of gin was named one of the best in the world at the recent IWSC and was described as "light and crisp with a touch of spice and juniper" and is best served with tonic. It fought off competition from several much more expensive rivals; the second place gin went to Foxhole London Dry Gin, which costs almost four times the price at £39.95.

Aldi was the only supermarket to win a gold medal for its gin, along with a further 19 awards including a gold medal for its Specially Selected Crème de Cassis, which costs £6.99. Other British gold medal winners include Bathtub Gin – both cask-aged and navy-strength, Gordon's London Dry Gin, Manchester Gin and Wild Island Botanic Gin.

Aldi's own-brand alcohol range has won a number of awards over the past couple of years, and at the beginning of July it was named Supermarket Own Brand Spirits Range of the Year at the International Spirits Challenge. A spokesperson for the ISC said Aldi "consistently showcased high quality products in the blind tastings, which demonstrates that you don't have to compromise on price to enjoy great tasting drinks". Other supermarkets to win awards for their own brand alcohol ranges include Lidl, Morrisons and Tesco.
