Updated daily/every other day.

In early December 2016, I thought it was a good idea to resurrect the wonderful yet expired alcohol mega thread that zombieman had originally posted. I did PM to ask him permission to resurrect/continue it but have not had a reply and he appears not to have been online for a good few months, so I will go ahead and hope for the best! Credit for the concept goes to him!

I have collated prices from the supermarkets and comparison websites and played with the API to make sure this post can be updated on a daily basis or at worst case scenario, every other day. The spreadsheet isn't quite perfect but I believe the prices are correct as of today (or the day of the update as per the title). Do bear in mind though that it excludes offers like Morrison's 2 for £20 on spirits. These are just prices per bottle.

I have tried to clean up the original spreadsheet and have marked the lowest prices in green. Good deals are highlighted in bold red and are marked if they are at least 15% cheaper than the next cheapest. Items marked "-" denote they are not sold at that specific supermarket or are out of stock (at least from a online shop perspective - they may be in stock in-store of course). Blue denotes that the current price matches the lowest ever price recorded.

As always you are welcome to add, suggest or amend deals. Let me know if there are errors too - I'm sure there will be some.

Just by looking at the spreadsheet, it would appear Asda are generally cheaper. Remember that any of those listed where Asda is not the cheapest, buy them from Asda as part of your weekly shop (or with 8 other items), and Asda will give you a voucher for the difference + 10%, via the Asda price guarantee. I believe that is still the case.

nice one. I wonder if next time you could add Tanqueray No.10 to list. I'm sure some of the users would appreciate that. thanks

I hope he's alright - All that cheap booze and that ! ........

Heat for the effort, very much appreciated

It says this deal was found 3 hours 8 minutes ago (at time of writing). I'm surprised to be honest, I've known about alcohol for ages now, years even, I guess the secret is out.

Any similar spreadsheet for beers?

Notice you don't include Aldi ? - some decent drinkies there - admittedly their own brand but their Old Hopkins (Rum with Caribbean Flavours) and their Black Label 6 year old whisky (albeit blended) are both good stuff at sensible prices !!!!

Heat added for not putting "mega thread" in the title

And their version of pimms isnt bad either for half the price n more

I'll drink a whiskey drink. I'll drink a vodka drink.

Fantastic that this is back. Well done OP.

~Just wondered why Aldi (and their specific) deals not included ? Their Old Hopkins (Rum with Caribbean flavourings) not merntioner - good value at £9.99 plus their super Black Label 6 year old (admittedly blended) whisky not included -despite winning awards. Recognised Brand labels not always best choice - any comments ?

The deal is not for own brand drinks as you can't buy it at another retailer....

I quite the Aldi port as well as that **** coconut rum type drink, is the Black label whisky worth it then? Any other recommendations?

Best laying off the 'hard stuff' for many folk IMHO can lead to alcohol related problems.
Not that wine or beer if 'safe' its just things can spiral out of control quicker with spirits.

I could add it but as pointed above, there is no exact comparison. Own-brand items will always be cheaper.

In the middle of an update. Have added ports, Tanqueray No.10 and Amazon.

Amazon data giving me a headache though: a lot of N/As and the API omits marketplace sellers. Will need to find a better solution for it or omit it altogether.

It's not a comparison of different types of whiskey/vodka/gin etc. it's a cost comparison by brand i.e. where to get each brand the cheapest.

If only Aldi stock an item, then there's no comparison to other retailers so doesn't need to be included IMO.

Update completed - some gaps which will be resolved for the next run
