Prosecco fans will want to pay a visit to Aldi this weekend, as their highly-anticipated three litre bottles of fizz are available in stores now. The supermarket excited shoppers when it announced that it was launching a new jeroboam of prosecco ahead of the Christmas, and stock has been flying off the shelves since they became available in stores on Tuesday.

Costing less than £40, it's no surprise the tipple has proved popular. The bottle is available for a limited time so you'll have to get yours while you can! The jeroboam is the equivalent size of four bottles or 24 glasses of prosecco, so will be ideal for serving at big Christmas dinners and parties – if not a little heavy. And at £39.99 a bottle, it's significantly cheaper than its rivals; a jeroboam at Marks and Spencer costs £50, while similar bottles also sell for £99.99 online.

Aldi's 11 per cent ABV prosecco comes from Veneto in Italy and is said to have sweet, delicate and dry tasting notes. It is set to launch in stores and online on 14 November and is sure to prove popular in the lead up to Christmas among a nation of prosecco lovers.

Brits are the biggest fans of prosecco in the world, and a recent report from The Consortium for the Protection of Prosecco revealed that out of the 410.9 million bottles of prosecco produced in 2016, one third came straight to the UK – equating to roughly 135,597,000 bottles!

Aldi's drinks range is proving increasingly popular, with the supermarket winning the drinks retailer of the year award in the 2017 Drinks Business Awards. While wine sales have grown by 15 per cent this year, their spirits are also proving popular; the Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin, which costs just £10, recently won a gold medal at the 2017 International Wine and Spirits Competition in the London Dry category. 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.
