Aldi to sell £300 Scotch for £50

Aldi is to sell a 40-year-old Scotch for just under £50 in its stores next month.

Going on sale in the chain’s 450 UK stores on 8 December, the supermarket is expecting huge demand for the whisky that was casked in 1971 and is being priced at £49.99.

Furthermore, only 3,000 bottles will be available in total and a spokesman predicted it would sell out in hours.

“Whisky of this quality and age would usually sell for around £300-plus,” said the spokesman.

“Aldi is giving customers the chance to get hold of a very high quality luxury product for a very low price.”

The whisky comes from an unnamed distillery in Speyside. The accompanying tasting note described it as: “Intense and rich, with an aroma of dark chocolate and dried figs, the sweet taste gives off a marmalade zestiness, and the dry oak tannins fade into a lingering sweet and mellow finish”.

From 24 November the grocer will also be stocking a 24-year-old Glen Marnoch for £24.99.
