Gin is so in right now. From a classic G&T to a more adventurous cocktail, Mother's Ruin is becoming more of a staple than ever - and the supermarkets have taken notice...

That's why we decided to take an in-depth look at the offering across the nation's favourite supermarkets, digging up the best value gins and most appropriate pricing to allow you to enjoy the new top tipple on a budget.

  • Aldi’s award-winning Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin (1L) retails at £14.19, making it 35p per measure and the best value for money gin available via the supermarket
  • Tesco and ASDA boast the best choice for value for money gins, both with four options among the top 20 on offer
  • Not all supermarkets are pricing up our favourite brands equally, with some brands showing as much as a 11p variance in price per measure

The UK's Best Price Gin from Supermarkets

Aldi gin seems to be the best value consistently, offering the lowest price for a 70cl and 1l bottle in the form of its Oliver Cromwell Dry Gin.

Sainsbury's gin is also appropriately priced, particularly when it comes to the brands - Greenall's gin is the best value branded gin available across the leading chains. Sainsbury's also offers the best budget sloe gin at 64p for a single measure.

When it comes to the smaller bottles, ASDA gin offers the best price - ensuring you won't spend well over the odds if you need a small bottle to take away with you.
