Lidl's Christmas spirits hit stores on Tuesday (October 31) featuring on-trend yuletide tipples - including two Hortus Gin Liqueurs.

Available in Rhubarb and Ginger and Scottish Raspberry flavours, the hand-crafted, traditionally distilled fruity bottles cost £11.99 each.

The two liqueurs join Lidl’s existing Hortus gin range, which includes the seasonal Hortus Sloe Gin, Hortus Oriental Spiced Gin and Hortus Original London Dry Gin - all available for £15.99 from Lidl stores nationwide.

Lidl’s spirits consultant and author of The Curious Bartender, Tristan Stephenson said the Hortus Scottish Raspberry Gin Liqueur can be enjoyed on its own, over ice, or as part of a spritz with champagne.

The Rhubarb and Ginger one is best matched with ginger beer, replacing your usual tonic mixer.

"These unbeatable prices for high-quality spirits is testament to Lidl continuing to deliver excellent value to our customers."
