Who said cream liqueurs were just for Christmas? Not us.
Aldi has brought back its much-loved Ballycastle Red Velvet Cream Liqueur especially for Valentine’s Day, and we’re really feeling the love.
From 29th January, you’ll be able to pick up a bottle in all UK Aldi stores for just £7.49. Baileys’ Red Velvet Cupcake edition of their famous liqueur is on sale for over double that price at £21.99, so you can rest assured you’re getting a proper bargain with Aldi’s version.
Aldi says its customers will be thrilled to see the re-launch of the liqueur, as it was one of the fastest-selling spirit launches to date when first introduced last year.
It really does sound like total heaven in a glass – boozy cream with red velvet cake flavours. It’s a pretty shade of pink that’ll look great in a cocktail, and the bottle is pretty enough with a red shimmer to sit nicely on your bar cart. What a winner!
It’s not the only dupe Aldi has become famous for. Recently, Aldi relaunched the hot chocolate maker that’s a cheaper version of the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser, and the soup maker that’s a dupe of a much more expensive Morphy Richards version.
They’ve got dupes covered when it comes to booze, too. Their Haysmith’s Blood Orange Gin is a dead ringer for Malfy’s, and their Infusionist Spiced Biscuit Gin Liqueur tastes just like lovely Lotus Biscoff Biscuits.
