Austins summer drink is back at Aldi for the summer! If you're looking for a cheap alternative to Pimms then this is definitely your best choice.

Stores started stocking it today, apparently some won't have it until the 28th.

At 22%, it's wine based (unlike Pimms that's gin based), but tastes VERY similar. When mixed with lemonade and fruit (and a dash of gin if you like), you really can't tell the difference to Pimms.

Cheapest Pimms at the moment is 2 litres for £26 at Tesco, so £13 a litre. At £7.80 a litre, Austins is definitely worth buying

Brill! I went to look for this last week. Couldn't remember the name just that it looked like Pimms.

Didn't find any so I'll check again today.

Cheers!

How daft is that? A summer drink for Xmas. I think you must've talked to someone who thinks Pimms is mulled wine!



She must have been thinking of the Winter version as they do an Austins's Winter drink too.

Got some

Have some heat from us as we love this stuff in the summer mixed up in a big jug as a cocktail with fresh fruit, tastes the same (well to us anyway) and sooo much cheaper than the proper stuff

It's a great buy. We also buy their ready mage sangria-type drink, perfect in a big jug with ice and fruit

Very true! Price updated

Cold but just because of the crazy price markup.

Well worth a try, but I did a blind tasting with several friends and all picked out the Pimms as preferable. It has a bit more alcohol too.
