The Infusionist Small Batch has been working hard to answer our prayers and has come up with a brand-new gin liqueur for Aldi that goes by the name of Mystical Unicorn… oooh how mysterious.

Well, not really, we know what this sweet liquid apparently tastes of and that’s candyfloss and marshmallows.

At £9.99 a bottle, this new bev is perfect for those with a sweet tooth (guilty!) and has come about at just the right time. Need I say those two wonderful words that we all LOVE to hear, BANK HOLIDAY!

Gin has never really appealed to me but all these new unusual flavours are just too intriguing to turn down and I for one am excited to try it! If it’s anything like the Parma Violet Flavour, then get me a bottle! At 20% Alcohol By Volume (ABV) in a 50cl bottle, I’m sure this new concoction will be just as tasty as the rest of Aldi’s gin collection, so if pink, sparkly drinks aren’t your forte then maybe the liqueurs featured in Aldi’s first-ever spirit festival will tickle your fancy.

Other drinks will feature the new Spiced Rhubarb Rum Liqueur, Passionfruit gin and even Strawberry and Cream Liqueur.

I’m sure everyone is familiar with this…strange…unicorn trend that is going on at the moment. I mean, we have unicorn bodywash, PJs, cupcakes, toys, so it only seems fitting to now have unicorn gin. What does a unicorn even smell like anyway?? (These are the questions that keep me up at night).

Facebook users have been getting even more excited with one saying,

“Got to have it for this weekend!”

While another said: “do we even need an excuse to try this?”

Seriously though, Aldi’s new gin collection is BOOMING at the moment with the huge array of flavours ranging from Passionfruit, to Seville Orange and Persian Lime, to even Colour-changing gin! What on earth will they concoct next I wonder?

Tutti Frutti gin of course – which is available now!

The store is due to feature in its first ever National Spirits festival and Aldi has teamed up with Didsbury Gin to bring us all these wonderful new flavours for around £13.99 a bottle. Didsbury, a Manchester-based gin company that is even stocked at Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, has been in cahoots with 2015 Masterchef Champion, Simon Wood, who came up with the new gin flavour exclusive to Aldi.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, added: “As flavoured gin shows no signs of slowing down, we’re thrilled to be partnering with Didsbury Gin to bring shoppers more unique flavour combinations like Simon Wood’s MasterChef winning dessert, Tutti Frutti.

“This innovative new addition to our gin range reflects our commitment to ensuring our customers enjoy the best quality products, without breaking the bank.”

The Tutti Frutti flavour was inspired by Woods’ famous Tutti Frutti dessert. Woods states:

“Tutti-Frutti literally translates as all the fruits. My dessert from the MasterChef final is my very own Citrus Tutti-Frutti.

“It’s made up of all the citrus fruit, lemon, lime, ruby grapefruit, vanilla & passion fruit. A great mix for a really tasty gin.”
