Father's Day Gift Ideas: Aldi's Alcohol Range

When it comes to buying gifts for Father's Day, I don't think you can go wrong with a bottle of his favourite alcoholic beverage. Aldi have a fabulous range in at the moment so you're sure to make his Father's Day special.

If your dad is a wine drinker, the Kooliburra Shiraz Australian Cabernet is a dark red wine which complements steak and chips perfectly (that's the ultimate Father's Day dinner, right!?). The spicy flavours balance the sweet, red berry fruits. It is only £3.99 so it won't break the bank!

White wine more his thing? The Exquisite Collection Clare Valley Riesling is a citrus-y white with green apple, lime and grapefruit flavours which make it perfect for summer. With only a £6.99 price tag and it goes well with a Chinese takeaway!

Old Peculiar Ale at £1.24 per bottle is an iconic English ale with rich, fruity flavours. It goes well with strong cheese, hearty stew and sweet desserts. It isn't available in Scottish Aldi stores, unfortunately. 

My dad loves his whisky so the Highland Black 8 Year Old Scotch Whisky is perfect for him. It's £12.99 a bottle and he tells me it's the nicest he's tasted yet! It has beautiful notes of vanilla and citrus and the fruit and malt flavour taste lovely over ice. 

A 6 pack of Steinhauser lager is an amazing £3.99. Chris tried these out and he really enjoyed them. Since having the children, he doesn't drink as much as he used to but he finished all 6 of these 330ml bottles in one night - they were just that nice and went down beautifully. If you're having a family BBQ for Father's Day, they go well with a hot dog with plenty of mustard and onions! 

Their range of Alska fruity ciders at £1.49 per 500ml bottle are a great gift for cider lovers. They are available in Pear & Lychee, Nordic Berries, and Peach & Raspberry flavours. They are so fruity that you wouldn't even think they were alcoholic - they're just like fruit juice! They are beautiful over ice and give you an instant taste of summer. 

You can find you nearest store at Aldi's Store Locator.

  1. I take a German beer any day but the fruity cider looks yummy too. I'm going to aldi homoerotic anyway to check out the baby event.
