Meet Aldi’s New Hazelnut & Caramel Flavoured Rum

Aldi is now selling a hazelnut and caramel flavoured rum to satisfy your winter needs and cravings.

Grab your quids and rush to Aldi, because the new hazelnut and caramel flavoured rum is a must-have.

We all love a little bit of rum to keep us warm in the chilly winter weather, and a little bit of dessert sweetness never hurts either. Well, what if we told you that Aldi has combined our sweet cravings and our love for rum and launched the rum we didn’t even know we wanted. 

Made by The Infusionist, the rum has a sweet, nutty aroma with toasted hazelnut flavour taking centre stage, followed by hints of rich caramel flavours. The best part? A 500ml bottle is a bargain at just £9.99. 

Aldi is also selling other festive flavoured rums such as chocolate-orange rum liqueur, and fig, honey & cinnamon rum liqueur. The three festive rums are all at the same price of £9.99.

All three rums are available on Aldi’s online store, however, it comes with a £2.95 shipping cost. You can also grab a bottle from one of Aldi’s 827 stores across the UK.

Find the closest Aldi store by looking through their store finder tool.

With innovations taking over, and brands coming out with seasonal products and packaging to appeal to consumers, we’ll definitely have to give both The Infusionist and Aldi a 10/10 for this.

What are Top 100 Spirits?

Top 100 Spirits are curated from the winners of the London Spirits Competition (LSC). It is curated and picked up by a leading panel of top-level spirits buyers with current direct commercial buying responsibility or spirits consultants and experts who are also directly involved in the development of new spirits brands or buying spirits for commercial resale.

The list of judges was drawn from leading retail chains, wholesalers, distributors, and on-trade groups across a variety of channels and disciplines including multiple retailing, convenience stores, cash and carries, specialist retailers, casual and fine dining, hospitality and travel industry. 

About the London Spirits Competition

The London Spirits Competition looks to recognise, reward and help promote spirits brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific spirits drinker. For any spirits brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s spirits list -  and then vitally stay there - they need to be marketable and consumer-driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.

The competition judges spirits in three key areas:

  1. Their Quality.

  2. Their value for money.

  3. What they look like.

To be an award winner you will need to have top quality spirits, that offers both the trade and the consumer great value for money, and you will need to look good and truly stand out on the shelf and on the back bar.

That is why the London Spirits Competition is different. It will single out and shine the spotlight on those spirits brands that consumers really want to buy and have a clear market value for trade buyers.

Call for domestic and international submission is now open for London Spirits Competition. Enter your spirits before 31 August 2024 to get super early bird pricing. Register now and ship later to save.
