ALDI has upped its festive offering from last year’s wine and beer advent calendars, adding Christmas gin crackers and baubles to the mix.
The supermarket notes: “It’s no secret though that the spirit of the season is gin. That’s why this year we have created a few more gin-focused products including baubles and crackers.
“What’s not to love about a Christmas tree decorated in gin?”
The Lakes Christmas Gin Baubles set is priced at $34.99, with six baubles containing Gin, Sloe Gin Liqueur and Damson Gin Liqueur.
(There’s also a Vodka Baubles set features six baubles filled with Vodka, Salted Caramel Vodka Liqueur and Espresso Vodka Liqueur.)
An estimated 15,000 customers crashed the company’s website when the decorations – each containing a double measure of gin – went on sale.
Each of the ALDI Christmas Gin Crackers ($39.99) has its own individual miniature 50ml bottle of premium British gin inside.
ALDI also has a 12 Gins of Christmas Gift Pack, priced at $59.99, which counts down the 12 days of Christmas with samples of 50ml bottles of gin from around the world.
The popular Wine Advent Calendar ($79.99) is also back, featuring 24 delicious bottles of 187-200ml French wine including sparkling, white, rose and red varietals.
And for the beer fans, there’s a Christmas Beer Advent Calendar $59.99 with 24 different beers from around the world. Beer drinkers can also enjoy a 12 Days of Craftmas Pack $39.99, featuring Aussie-made craft beer.
All of the above go on sale November 13.
