Found 29th Oct 2014
I've been putting together some price tracking for spirits at the major supermarkets which will be regularly updated as prices change.

Hopefully people will find this useful in the run up to that certain time of year...

Notes:
Anything missing then please ask

Port now added

Cheers for the update, I'm running an update on it now, it should pick up on todays price changes then the images above will update automatically.
I'll look at adding any requests such as Green Mark!

for a one off tipple, load my supermarket app. search for your drink of choice and it will show best current deal in main supermarkets

Great list, even better would be the addition of the whisky offers too!

Thanks

Good effort but need to double check some pricing
Gordon's Gin 1Lt £15 @ Tesco & Asda not £18/£18.50
Smirnoff Red 1Lt £15 @ Tesco & Asda also not £18/£18.50
Only checked these two so may be more mistakes

Will you do this as a live Google spreadsheet?

People love a bit of effort, and they love a bit of alcohol... you are in for some heat.

The prices are updating at the moment. They'll automatically change in about 5-10 mins once it's finished

Top thread!

These have never been near a spreadsheet, I've scripted the images to automatically generate at scheduled intervals using PHPs GD Library.

heat just for the effort.

Think its clear from the Spreadsheet that ASDA does the best prices generally on booze. Tesco the worst!
Thanks for posting, looking forward to the whiskey one.

brill thanks

I see a lot of red in Asda... might have to brave the students and ne'er-do-wells

Great work!

Heat op - brilliant post.
Nope, clueless on spreadsheets- how do I view your list? When I 'go to deal' just takes me to Asda.

Thanks, BeerDrinker!

Costco is always best place to buy grey goose

Geez £115 for grey goose!. Can buy a real goose for that

Great effort on the spreadsheet. Is there any current "decent" offers on whiskeys at the moment also? Perhaps an extension to the spreadsheet? :-)

Great effort, but all kind of pointless now Morrisons match everything - just go there!

Heat and lol for mega effort. And username.

Great post!

How come If I order a bottle of Jack

Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey 70Cl
SAVE £10.00 Was £25.00 Then £20.00 Now £15.00

It still goes through at £25.00 ?.

http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/malibu-caribbean-white-rum-with-coconut-70cl
£10

And why even would you, as you could get 2.1 lires by buying 3 x 700ml bottles from the same shop

so I'd need to hand over my personal details, wait for a loyalty card to arrive in the post and then get the difference back in loyalty points? have I got that correct? go on then I may as well go to Morrisons!

Patiently waiting for the whiskey list!

thanks

Cracking Post! A suggestion maybe, Highlight in green for the best £ per litre for each different brand?

IE Grey Goose the £36 bottles of 700ml is MUCH better than £115 for 1.5L.

Not hard to work out for yourself though I guess.
