According to the award’s site, the Haysmith’s Rhubarb & Ginger is the only one of Aldi’s top-rated entries to have received such a praise. The supermarket has also been awarded both bronze and silver accolades for some of its other alcoholic offerings.

This is not the first time Aldi’s Rhubarb & Ginger gin has received a gold honour. In 2021, Aldi received a nod at the Gin Masters awards, where it was named as one of the top-flavoured gins.

Its latest praise is seen to cement the gin as one of the best in the world, as only a limited selection of spirits make the cut for the prestigious IWSC awards.
