Aldi Single Malt Whisky named best in the world for second year in a row - and costs just £17.49 a bottle
One of Aldi’s popular alcoholic spirits has been named as a world-best at a prestigious awards ceremony
One of Aldi’s popular alcoholic beverages - which costs less than £20 a bottle - has been named the best in the world at the renowned International Spirits Challenge. For the second year running Aldi’s Glen Marnoch Highland Single Malt Whisky has been awarded a gold medal at the premier event which promotes outstanding quality spirits from across the globe.
The budget drink, which costs just £17.49 a bottle beat competitors costing over double the price, such as the Peat Chimney Wemyss Malts (£38.74). And it isn’t the first time Aldi’s whisky range has been given the nod of approval by experts as the supermarket’s quality offering was awarded a combined 11 medals at IWSC Spirits and ISC Whisky awards in 2022.
Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “It is fantastic to see four of our hero whiskies recognised by experts in the industry, with one landing a gold medal two years in a row. This competition has shown that we are making world-class whisky on par with premium bottles – for a fraction of the price.”
Aldi also scooped up three silver medals for its Glen Marnoch Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (£17.49, 70cl), Glen Marnoch 12 YO Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (£21.99, 70cl) and Glen Marnoch Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (£17.49, 70cl) – the same accolade awarded to The Glenturret Triple Wood Single Malt Whisky, which costs 65% more.
