One shopper described the festive tipple asabsolute bliss” sur Facebook.

Aldi describes its Bellucci Amaretto Velvet Liqueur as havingcreamy almond flavours that meet delicious vanilla notes.

The liqueur is a dupe of the more expensive Disaronno Velvet Liqueur which retails at £16.50 meaning that customers buying the Aldi dupe will save over £11.

The budget supermarket recommends sipping the tipple over ice or adding a dash into a warm mug of cocoa to create a delicious hot drink.

Aldi has also suggested that the liqueur works wonders in its smooth operator espresso martini, made up of:

  • 20ml of vodka
  • 40ml of the velvet liqueur
  • 15ml of sugar syrup or 1 teaspoon of honey
  • One small espresso
  • Ice

Aldi shoppers can bag the bargain liqueur in-store and online.

You can find your nearest store online using the Aldi store locator on its website.

Those still loyal to the Disaronno version can still shop around for a better deal.

While the tasty tipple usually retails at £16.50 some supermarkets have dropped their prices.

Morrisons is selling a 500ml bottle for £11.99 and Asda for £12.

Waitrose has also dropped the price of a bottle to £13.

And in previous years the drinks have been a sell-out and M&S even slapped them with a buying limit because of the huge demand.

And the price of a bottle of snow globe gin has gone down this year.

Customers can pick up the tipple for just £16that’s £4 less than last Noël when it would have set you back £20.

Mais Aldi’s sells similar dupes for £13.99a whole £2 cheaper than the M&S snow globe liqueurs.

This year Aldi has revealed three new bottle designs, two of which light up, each with a flurry of 23-carat gold flakes.
