Four of Aldi's whiskies have been named among the best in the world

Four of Aldi’s whiskies have been named among the best in the world at an international awards ceremony.

The whiskies won four gold medals at the highly acclaimed Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters – a global competition that pits spirits against each other in a series of rigorous blind taste tests – and the only awarding body comprised of completely independent judges, including experienced bartenders and educators.

The award-winning whiskies include the £13.49 Malt Black Scotch Whisky, the £17.49 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the £17.49 Single Malt Scotch Whisky and the £14.99 Hogwash Blended Malt Scotch Whisky.

The supermarket also added a Silver medal for its Highland Black Scotch Whisky, £13.49, to its ever-expanding trophy cabinet.

This isn’t the first time Aldi’s whisky range has been given the nod of approval by experts – this is actually the second consecutive year that the Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky has won a gold medal.

This year alone, Aldi’s spirits range has been awarded an impressive 17 medals at international competitions.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: ‘These results are a testament to our dedicated buying team’s ongoing hard work to bring great-value spirits to our shelves and Aldi’s unwavering consistency in sourcing only the highest quality spirits for our shoppers.

‘We’re delighted that all five of the whiskies entered were awarded medals, and even more thrilled that four of them achieved Gold.’
