Perfect for the upcoming festive season, Lidl have unveiled a brand new tipple: Brecon Chocolate Orange Gin. The Christmassy spirit has gone on sale today, Tuesday 3rd November, as part of the supermarket’s Spirits Festival but it will only be available to buy in stores, not online.
The perfect Christmas gift
Chocolate orange gin is now available to buy at Lidl stores in the UK–and it sounds absolutely delicious. The 37.5% alcohol liqueur comes from the Penderyn Distillery in Wales and is priced at £18.99 for a 70cl bottle. With its gorgeous deep orange colour, it’s a perfect Christmas gift for gin lovers.
A representative for Lidl said:
The Brecon Chocolate Orange Gin boasts flavours of powdery cocoa and silky vanilla with bursts of sweet orange and an unmistakably full-bodied juniper. Serve topped with tonic and garnished with cinnamon and orange for a deliciously different take on a classic.
For those who don’t have a Lidl locally–or who don’t want to make the trip to the supermarket–you can also order a similar chocolate orange gin from Love the Lakes via their website or Amazon. It is a little dearer than Lidl’s version, priced from just £4.59 for a 5cl adult stocking-filler bottle or £19.99 for a full-sized 500ml bottle.
Lots of other flavours
If chocolate orange gin doesn’t tickle your fancy, Lidl are also selling an equally Christmassy Anno Spiced Cranberry Gin with cranberry, orange and spicy clove flavours, or Harborough Pear Drop Gin which is apparently perfect when pear-ed with Prosecco. Both of these gins are priced at £19.99 for a 70cl bottle.
Meanwhile for another perfect Christmas gift for gin lovers, Lidl are also selling a 6-pack of Pickering’s Gin Baubles. This box contains six colourful Christmas baubles to hang on your tree–each filled with 5cl of Pickering’s gin! They make a gorgeous decoration – just make sure to keep them out of reach of children and pets!
