Aldi has welcomed a brand-new flavour to its booze collection, giving shoppers a new summer drink to indulge in. Landing on supermarket shelves is a limited edition flavour of its Country Cream range.

Fans of Ballycastle can now find the all-new Madagascan Vanilla in Aldi branches across the country. But much like all other Specialbuys, once it’s gone, it’s gone.

The limited edition flavour is available in shops now for just £7.49. Madagascan Vanilla joins the Ballycastle Country Cream 70cl (£5.79) and limited edition Ballycastle Colada Pineapple & Coconut Flavour Country Cream 70cl (£7.49).

This limited-edition flavour offers a 'combination of luxurious double cream and velvety vanilla'. A 'delightful and sophisticated' tipple when served over ice, or the ideal addition to a boozy ice cream sundae or milkshake.

But shoppers better be quick, as Ballycastle fans have already been rushing to the store to grab themselves a bottle of the brand-new flavour following the launch last week. Shoppers described it as the “best one yet”.

One shopper said: “Just take all of my money right now!!!" Another said: “Gonna be a smashing summer.” Aldi has even shared a Boozy Vanilla Milkshake recipe for fans looking to spruce up their regular milkshake.
