ALDI’s whisky recognised at global awards

ALDI Australia’s exclusive label scotch whisky has been recognised with six awards at the 2024 Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards.

The retailer’s Highland Scotch Whisky range was put to the “ultimate test” by over 300 spirit enthusiasts, winning a Platinum medal and two Gold medals. Experts assessed more than 1300 spirits across various categories, meticulously judging them based on aroma, taste, and finish.

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 receiving a Gold medal. Highland Green Blended Malt Scotch Whisky was also a recipient of a Gold medal in the ‘Blended Scotch (up to 10 years)’ category.

All three bottles received extra recognition with the additional honour of the Consumers’ Choice Award. This award is only presented to brands who consistently impressed the panel of judges by winning in their respective categories for two consecutive years.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our exceptional range of whisky, with prestigious global award wins against top-shelf spirits,” says ALDI Australia Buying Director Paul Handley.

“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. 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.

“The multi award-winning Highland Whisky range can be enjoyed neat, chilled, with ice, or within an Old-Fashioned cocktail…”

Earlier this year, ALDI Australia’s Lazzio coffee was awarded overall Large Chain Champion at the 2024 World Series Golden Bean Awards.
