Aldi: Best Spirits Supermarket 2022

Aldi has scooped the Best Spirits Supermarket 2022 award at The People’s Choice Spirits Awards, the result of the sheer number of votes that the supermarket received by spirit lovers, beating rival supermarkets, Booths and Waitrose, to take home the coveted award. 

The awards ceremony, which took place at Stoller Hall in Manchester, welcomed people from across the country to celebrate some of the best spirits, bar and retail companies in the UK right now. From canned cocktails through to sipping Tequilas, there was something for everyone searching for the perfect tipple.

Bartenders, brand owners, producers, consumer and professional judges gathered in Manchester to find out who had taken the top prize in each of the categories, in a ceremony hosted by Helena Nicklin and Aidy Smith, two of The Three Drinkers, a popular Amazon Prime series.  Comedy was courtesy of Steve Royle, a Britain’s Got Talent finalist and local funny man.

This year’s entries were also an exciting reflection of the trends driving the spirits and cocktail market in 2022. From mindful drinking and no and low alcohol spirits, to ready-to-drink cocktails and, of course, the ever-popular gin.

The People’s Choice Wine Awards was created in 2017 by Janet Harrison of Cracking Wine and Judy Kendrick, MD of award-winning wine marketing consultancy, JK Marketing. 

The People’s Choice Drinks Awards, now incorporating wines and spirits, is the only UK-based national drinks awards dedicated to and judged by consumers with help and support from industry professionals. They are designed to accurately reflect how the average drinker in the UK chooses and enjoys wines and spirits.
