JUST in time for the bank holiday weekend, Lidl is launching six new gins and they’re a dream for any G&T fans.
The range includes a gin tasting of lavender and rose, and it even changes colour.
You can pick up a bottle of colour-changing gin at Lidl this week
Simply mix the Harborough gin with tonic, and it magically transforms from blue to pink.
The tipple has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 40 per cent. Each 70cl bottle will set you back £21.99.
But if you like your gin sweet, you’re in luck because the discount supermarket is also rolling out one that tastes of strawberries as well as pre-mixed gin and tonic bottles with hints of orange.
Just like the colour-changing version, the Tyke’s strawberry gin comes with an ABV of 40 per cent, and it also has the same price tag at £21.99.
The supermarket has launched six new gins and brought back old favourites too
Meanwhile, the pre-mixed drinks from Opihr come in smaller bottles of 275ml and cost £2.49 each. Of course, these also have a lower ABV at only 6.5 per cent.
Other new additions to the range include The Shetland Reel Filska Gin, The Lakes Explorer and Brecon Botanicals Gin.
The latter is the cheapest of all the new gins setting you back £17.99 with an ABV of 43 per cent, while the other two costs £24.99 and they have ABVs of 40 and 47.1 per cent respectively. All bottles contain 70cl.
Lidl has also brought back old favourites such as 70cl bottles of rhubarb and ginger gin from Aber Falls for £21.99, and rose gin from Strathearn Heather, which costs £19.99 for just 50cl.
All bottles landed in Lidl stores today as part of its yearly gin festival, but sadly they’re only available as long as stocks last so you’ll need to be quick.
The discount supermarket has more than 700 shops across the UK. You can find your nearest one using its store locator tool.
Of all the new gins, The Sun has only been able to find the cheapest tipple – Brecon Botanicals – on sale at the UK’s major supermarkets.
This will actually set you back less at Tesco, where it currently costs £17, down from £23.
In the last ten years sales of gin – affectionately known as Mother’s Ruin – have tripled.
Drinkers spent £461million on gin last year, up by 32.5 per cent on the year, according to the Office for National Statistics.

This week, wine maker Echo Falls launched its very own pink gin – and it sounds delicious.
It’s following in the footsteps of cider company Kopparberg, which recently announced it has developed a pink gin.
And last week, Aldi launched three new flavoured gins – including one that tastes like liquorice.
As always, please be Drinkaware.
Kopparberg now does PINK GIN – and we’ve sampled it!
