    I don't think there is a cheapest place to buy it, depends what brand or whether you are happy with own brand/value uf you'll be flavouring it yourself. but lidi do gin for around £9 so may be worth checking

    Thank you....I'm just want cheapest possible because I will be mixing with fruit and sugar

    I use cheapest "own brand" vodka to make limoncello - again you are adding fruit and sugar so all you are after is the alcohol - lido and aldi sound good though. Out of interest what flavours are you going to do - I might try that next.

    You can get Tesco Value and Smartprice Gin but I'm not sure I'd risk it. I remember drinking very cheap vodka years ago and spending the night with my head down the loo......

    Some results from MySuperMarket.co.ukhere. If you want value in terms of Litres per £, how about the ASDA London Dry Gin, 1.5L for £22, that's £1.47 per litre.

    You are supposed to drink it from a glass not straight from the bottle.

    Aghh - thanks. Sorry, I should have said £1.47/100ML for the ASDA version. As you mention, this is actually more expensive than the ALDI version that works out at ~£1.42/100ML. Think that's now correct. Apologies again for the inaccuracy and thanks for the correction.

    I did use a mixer, smart guy :P

    I remember it well. It was circa 1990 and the vodka was called "Rolov". Not the sort of evening I was expecting to have! Maybe it was one of those rogue badly distilled illegal vodkas.

    Edit: Actually, they still sell it. boozereview.co.uk/201…it/ (It's gut rot, either that or I'm allergic to something in it. Not recommended). Sorry for veering off-topic, freddysmum).

    Lol Louise Louise....not a problem....it makes threads more fun x

    I make fruit flavoured gins and the results are never so good if you use a cheap gin. I made that mistake as I thought that as I was adding fruit and sugar, it wouldn't make a difference, but believe me, it really does make a difference. I usually make sloe gin, raspberry gin, rhubarb gin and bramble gin (hic) x
