Aldi relaunches popular Scottish beer and gin brands

Aldi has relaunched some of the most popular Scottish craft gin and beer brands from the in-store festivals it hosted last year.

Eden Mill’s rhubarb, ginger and blackcurrant flavoured gin liqueur, retailing at £14.99, is back on shelves now.

This is an exclusive for Aldi stores in Scotland and it was awarded a bronze at Agile Media’s International Spirits challenge this year.

Stewart Brewing has supplied Raspberry Mafia and Stravaig, 33cl bottles retailing at £1.39. The former is a saison made with Scottish raspberries and the latter is a session IPA.

Meanwhile, Six Degrees North’s Brevet Saison is described as “a fruity and zesty pale ale with notes of raspberry and lemon”, and pale ale brand Hopocrosy is also making a reappearance after a sell-out appearance at last year’s Scottish beer festivals.

Graham Nicolson, group buying director at Aldi Scotland, said: “Scotland’s craft drinks sector continues to thrive, and for summer 2019 we have selected some of our best-selling lines to make a return.

“At Aldi, we’re always looking for unique Scottish products to add to our range and we are proud to work with ambitious and innovative companies like Eden Mill, Stewart Brewing, Fallen Brewing, and Six Degrees North.”
