Aldi is selling dupe for the sell-out M&S snow globe gin – and its £6 cheaper

Marks & Spencer's sell-out festive gin is set to go up against Aldi's brand new offering, as the discount chain plans to launch their very own version of the snow globe tipple.

Last year, M&S saw the shelves cleared of its light-up Christmas gin, which proved so popular they had to cap the limit to only one per customer.

Whilst the retailer is bringing back their popular gold-flecked liqueur for the 2021 festive season, it looks like budget competitor Aldi will be doing the same, but for a whopping £6 cheaper.

From November 8, Aldi frequenters will be able to purchase their very own Infusionist Glitter Globe Gin Liqueur for only £13.99.

This is a very reasonable £6.01 cheaper than the Marks & Spencer offering, and it extends on the discount chain's current glitter globe range which was launched earlier this year.

Aldi already released a collection of limited-edition springtime flavours at the start of 2021, with the collection featuring flavours such as peach and elderflower.

And as Christmas draws in a little closer, the German supermarket plans to introduce two new gin liqueurs for fans to enjoy.

Both the sweet blackberry and the clementine flavours are part of Aldi's new festive range and come in 70cl light-up glass bottles which double up as great centrepieces.

Filled with flecks of 23-carat gold leaf, the tipple looks a whole lot pricier than it's £13.99 price-point.

Eager shoppers will need to wait another three weeks though, as the gin collection doesn't launch until November 8.

If you simply cannot wait, M&S is already taking pre-orders for its hugely popular gin liqueur.

They won't just have one flavour this year, as they've announced a whole collection of the sparkly gin liqueurs for 2021.

Calling them "the must-have gifts of the season", shoppers can pick up the statement bottles for £20 from stores and online.

This year, the bottles will all be decorated in gorgeous Nutcracker-inspired designs, and will be available in two different flavours, consisting of their classic clementine flavour from last year, and the brand new spiced sugar plum.

Describing the exciting new launches, M&S said: "Introducing the must-have gifts of the season: our sparkly snow globe gin liqueurs in light-up bottles with stunning Nutcracker-inspired designs.

"Try our iconic clementine gin liqueur with 23-carat edible gold leaf, or opt for our new spiced sugar plum gin liqueur, which has a mince pie-like flavour and contains silver leaf.

"They’re amazing served on the rocks or with tonic."

If you're also partial to a cheeky bit of rum, you're in luck as the retailer is also introducing a brand new Madagascan vanilla flavoured spiced rum liqueur to the Christmas range.

M&S explained that the vanilla rum liqueur in particular is great with ginger beer, and the bright orange bottle bottle features the same Nutcracker designs as the gin collection.

They wrote: "Our new Madagascan vanilla light-up snow globe rum liqueur features creamy vanilla notes layered over tropical rum flavours.

"Like our gin liqueurs, it’s presented in a beautiful Nutcracker-inspired bottle and contains edible gold leaf. Serve on the rocks or with fiery ginger beer."

You can even pick up huge cases of this year's gin and rum light-up bottles, with M&S even offering up pre-packed gift sets which would make perfect presents for the big day.
