About this deal

However, I wanted to go into this tasting with an open mind so tried my best to leave previous encounters with Sloe Gin behind.

Everyone loves a drink at Christmas, so I decided to put two bottles of the gins to the test. To keep it fair, I tried both clementine flavours to see which really was the best. While the Aldi taste wasn't awful, I would drink it again - but when teamed with a mixer it seemed to lose a little flavour. When you press the light underneath, the bottle glows a glorious bronze/gold colour - with the light reflecting off the flakes. If there's one thing that we all love in the run up to Christmas, it's all the festive food and drink on sale. So, why not turn to a Scottish gin brand that’s ready to serve up some 41% ABV gold flake fun? Swiss 24-karat edible gold is added to the Scotland-made gin and we think that exudes pure elegance… someone should sip this spirit in long silk gloves and a golden floor-length gown.If you want to take your Gilded Gin experience to the next level, the brand also sells some exceptionally opulent glasses encrusted with gold diamante.

The gold flakes seemed finer here too - but there was more. However you needed to give it a real good shake to see the effect. Both retailers' gins liqueurs come in a clementine flavour. M&S also do a mulled sugar plum flavour. M&S argued the Cuthbert cake infringed its trademark and "rode on the coat-tails" of its reputation.Both would make great Christmas gifts however - and I can see them being popular once again this year.

Of course, the gold flakes also stand out, but don’t do much in terms of flavor and are truly there for your aesthetic pleasure. The shiny star, or in this case, Christmas Tree, or the product, was the design of the bottle, in the centre stood a glass Christmas Tree surrounded by floating gold flakes. Aldi’s bottle is beautiful to look at, the snow covered trees and sparking gold flakes in the gin giving the drink the ultimate festive feeling. Add to it that it lights up - with two different settings - it's certainly impressive. Mixing it with tonic, the Cranberry and Clementine was still very prominent and somehow transformed from a Christmas feel to a more refreshing summer taste, helping it become the perfect all-year-round gin.
