Soaring to the top of our cheapest supermarket mulled wines is Tesco Mulled Wine at £2.25 for Clubcard users, or 53p per 175ml glass—cheaper than a meal deal and possibly even cheaper than chips. There’s no holding back in the supermarket wars for your festive pounds: ASDA tails Tesco with the own-brand ASDA Mulled Wine for £2.50 a bottle, with Aldi Mulled Wine just a pinch more expensive at £2.69.

Although not compulsory, we strongly encourage pairing your mulled wine with The Holiday, or Die Hard for some extra street cred.

Save £35 by shopping around for mulled wine deals

Hey Amazon, your algorithm’s showing. Amazon works in mysterious ways, driving prices up to absurd levels or shaving off a few pence to outsmart the competition. When it comes to mulled wine deals though, consumers are the Bob Cratchit to Amazon’s Scrooge. Crabbies Mulled Ginger Wine is a cool £7.49 at Drinksupermarket and a stomach-churning £41.99 at Amazon, or a truly bizarre £10.50 a glass—costing more than the projected National Living Wage rate for 2022.1 Bah humbug.

Strangely, another Amazon listing reveals the same bottle for £6.50, which just goes to show that it pays to shop around.

The best mulled wine spices

traditional mulled wine spices
♫ Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, mulled wine bubbling on the stove. ♫

If you’re all about a homemade Christmas, whipping up a mulled spice blend is a breeze. Traditional mulled wine requires cinnamon, star anise, cloves and nutmeg, but if you're feeling adventurous, we like this citrusy Mulled Wine Recipe by Food Network.

The cheapest mulled wine spices are just 95p at Morrisons, which takes the top spot with Morrisons Mulled Wine Spices. Bear in mind that you’ll need to supply a bottle of red to brew with your spices—assuming your red wine costs the £6 UK average, your mulled wine expenses could be £1.62 per glass (almost 2.8x the price of our cheapest mulled wine).2

Tips for getting the best mulled wine deals & offers

  1. Check vouchercloud discount codes. We're specialists in saving, and that includes on your Christmas tipple. Try our food and drinks vouchers for discounts on your next bottle, and you might want to head to browse our Morrisons, Tesco and Amazon vouchers too.
  2. Shop around. Prices are not universal—by shopping at another retailer, you could save anything from a few pence to a couple of tens.
  3. DIY it. If you have star anise, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg knocking around your spice rack already, there's no reason you can't Mary Berry it and create your own delicious mulled wine at home.
  4. Check the volume/£. Although you can often save by buying greater volumes, that isn't usually the case with mulled wine. Figure out how much you actually need and work out the cost per bottle!
