Gin is the fastest growing spirits category among Irish consumers - growing more than 30 per cent in 2016 according to the Irish Spirits Association.

Aldi is jumping on the gin bandwagon with a novel new product for Christmas - gin-filled Christmas baubles.

Sure what could be more Christmassy than decorating your tree with alcohol?

Pickering’s Gin Baubles (6 Pack) will be on sale in 129 Aldi stores nationwide from 12th November for €26.99.

It's a Scottish gin from Summerhill Distillery, the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years.

According to Aldi, "In the months leading up to Christmas, the team at Pickering’s forage amongst ancient juniper trees, then fill, cap, ribbon, pack and wrap every single bauble with gin."

It is best served with tonic water and a slice of pink grapefruit.

Remember that when you're snatching them from the tree on Christmas Eve.

Also remember to keep them well out of the reach of smallies or animals.
