Aldi 40 Year Old Glenbridge For Under £50!

21st November 2011

Aldi launches Limited Edition 40 year old single malt whisky for under £50!

Yes you have read it right, Aldi supermarket will be selling a 40 year old limited edition Speyside single malt whisky for only £49.99. Don't rush down to your local Aldi store just yet as it doesn't go on sale until Thursday 8th December and I doubt there will be any left come Friday the 9th December.

Aldi is the first supermarket ever to sell an own-label spirit older than 21 years, namely a 24 year old Highland malt by the name of Glen Marnoch which will be available in Aldi stores from Thursday 24th November 2011.

Aldi will be releasing 3,000 bottles of the Glenbridge 40 year old whisky throughout its 450 UK stores as a special Christmas present to loyal shoppers. The store is predicting that the whisky will sell out within hours and could even appear for sale on eBay as hard-up Brits look to capitalise on the amazing deal.

Aldi’s Spirits Buyer said: "Whisky of this quality and age would usually sell for around £300 plus. Aldi is giving customers the chance to get hold of a very high quality luxury product for a very low price."

The Speyside Single Malt comes from one of Scotland’s finest distilleries and has been matured in European Oak Sherry casks, resulting in a very intense and rich flavour. The beautiful decanter is presented in a stylish gift box.

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.

Glenbridge 40 Year Old Single Malt Whisky – £49.99, 70cl, 40% ABV On sale from 8th December 2011, available as long as stock lasts.

Anyone who wishes to make a guess about which distillery the Glenbridge 40 originates from or wants to give there opinion of it once they have tasted it fell free to post on the whisky forum.
