A welcome return for one of my favourite winter drinks. Saw it in store today as well but also available to order online.

Last year people were suggesting you could make your own, see thread below

Can this be converted to Bud Light? Dilly Dilly!
Everything I know about Oliver Cromwell is from the Monty Python song about him, it's got me a few pub quiz answers in the past...Oliver Cromwell Lord Protector of England, born in 1599 died 1658, September... It doesn't mention anything about Gin though.
Voted hot for the name...
Those who are upset by the name, buy it and drink it on chrismas...
Wart and all that's what Oliver said to his painter who painted him.
I'll stick to my Genghis Can ale.
... wasn't Oliver Cromwell a tee-totaller?
This is cheaper than making your own, but theres no personal touch like home made :-)
(Made 2 days ago, just need to store it somewhere dark now)

Ha - amusing that people are worrying about the name - it's an Aldi own brand distilled in Holland, they just stick a different label on it in each country to try and make it sound a little more homegrown. It's called 'Corley's gin' in Ireland for example. (Can't think why the Irish might not want it called Oliver Cromwell there...!!) So maybe William of Orange Gin would be a better name...

Hot.Just to counteract the idiocy of the above comment.


I'm waiting for the Fred West one to appear. Nothing is surprising in this place anymore.

It's still cheaper if you don't pay for your sloes as this is a 50cl bottle. One litre of Aldi Gin is £14.19 and 250g of sugar is 14p (if you buy a 2kg bag at Morrisons for £1.10) so 50cl of homemade is £7.17 even if you don't get an increase in volume from the base gin amount.

Yes your right,
Sorry, i just assumed it was 70 cl & then there was only £1 difference ( & the grade A Madagascar pods are £2.5 each.....!)
The first recipe i did years ago, did actually have a short length of vanilla pod in the recipe :/ ( i am going to try a bottle with it in, again this year just to see what its like ??)

So far this year ive made;
3.1L of Oliver Cromwell Gin - Sloe
1L Cheap Vodka - Sloe
1.2L Martel Brandy with Blackberries

On Tuesday i picked 1.8KG which are now washed, dried & presently in the freezer waiting for me to buy some more alcohol.
I have a litre of Smirnoff vodka which im going to use & then buy gin i think !
