Aldi releases new unicorn gin – it tastes like candy floss and marshmallow

Gin is undoubtedly one of the nation's favourite drinks and now Aldi has launched a whole new range of the spirit. The supermarket is releasing a unicorn gin liquor which tastes exactly like candy floss and marshmallow. It will feature the mythical creatures on the label and shoppers can make it sparkle by simply shaking the bottle. From August 22, the tipple will be available to all Aldi customers in store and online. The 50cl bottle has a 20% alcohol by volume (ABV) and will cost as little as £9.99.

Meanwhile, the supermarket added new candles and diffusers to its Luxury Collection. On August 29, Aldi customers will have a choice of two scents – Oud Bergamot or Honey and Nectarine. The diffusers feature the same metallic details which help to provide a pop of colour to any home. From tutti frutti to glittery parma violet, Aldi's selection of gin is seriously something else. And now the bargain supermarket is upping its game even further with the release of a brand-new unicorn gin liquor - and it looks absolutely magical.

Said to taste of marshmallows and candy floss, it's a sweet lovers' dream and it even shimmers and sparkles when you shake it. Made by The Infusionist Small Batch, you'll be able to get your hands on a bottle both in store and online from this Thursday 22nd August, just in time to stock up for the long weekend ahead. It'll set you back £9.99 for a 50cl bottle, but we recommend getting as much as your bank balance will allow as we imagine this delicious drink won't last long. Understandably people are getting very excited about this over on Facebook, with one saying: "Got to have it for this weekend!" and another asking "do we even need an excuse to try this?" And the good news doesn't stop there - Aldi will be launching another ten spirits just in time for the bank holiday to celebrate its first ever spirits festival, including rum, cream liqueurs and canned cocktails. Gin lovers will also find a Passion Fruit, Apricot and Coconut flavour (£19.99) as well as a Rhubarb and Bramble gin for £15.99, while there's a Strawberries and Cream flavour liqueur for £9.99, a bottle of pre-mixed Passion Fruit Vodka Martini and can of Raspberry Mojito for £1.29, as well as an online exclusive Tequila & Mezcal (£29.99) which is sweet, fruit and slightly spicy.

"Mexican spirits are becoming increasingly popular, with statistics revealing that tequila is the second-fastest growing spirits category after gin," said an Aldi spokeswoman. "The rise of cocktail culture means Brits are becoming more adventurous with their spirit choices, accounting for the growth of mezcal, which is often favoured due to the variety of flavours available."
