Aldi’s Highland Earl Scotch Whisky received a platinum medal in the ‘Blended Malt Scotch Whisky’ category, in good company with Highland Black 8YO Scotch Whisky and Highland Green Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, which both scored gold medals.

Aldi whisky connoisseur and buying director Paul Handley said they were thrilled to celebrate their exceptional range with wins against top-shelf spirits.

“Delivering the highest quality liquor at the most affordable price point is our top priority when it comes to what we put on our shelves for our customers,” he said.

“Winning the consumer panel’s vote in the SIP Awards’ blind tasting is a testament to our promise of low-price, high-quality options for our shoppers.”

Mr Handley said their multi award-winning Highland Whisky range could be enjoyed neat, chilled, with ice, or within an old-fashioned cocktail.

“For me, there’s nothing better than a dram of our Highland Earl Scotch Whisky, on a cold winter’s night, by the fire, bringing the essence of Scotland to my home to perfectly end the week,” he said.

“The Highland range also is always great to have in the whisky cabinet when a few friends come over for an after-dinner treat.”

The three winning bottles also received an extra splash of recognition with the additional honour of the Consumers’ Choice Award.
