Lidl Ireland has released details of a short-lived promotion on Prosecco which is due to take place in Irish stores later this month.

The German supermarket chain is selling six bottles of Prosecco for the price of four (€31.96) for two days in October.

The special offer will be in place on Saturday October 28 and October 29.

Customers have been advised by the store to drink responsibly on a post on their Facebook page this evening advertising the deal.

Lidl has been capitalising on Prosecco's newfound popularity of late and recently released details of its organic 'hangover free' version of the drink.

Lidl claims their organic drink will banish that morning after feeling as it has less sulphites, which lead to hangovers.

The ‘Organic Prosecco Spumante’ is all set to hit shelves in the UK this Thursday and is priced at a very reasonable £7.99.

The miracle bottles will no doubt cause a fiasco in stores as prosecco lovers try to get their hands on a bottle.

According to Lidl’s master of wine, Richard Bampfield, the bubbly has bright aromas of 'pear and white peach'.

"We’ve all had that shocking wine hangover. This is sometimes attributed to the sulphite preservatives used in wine to keep them fresher for longer.

"Generally, organic wine producers use a lower level of sulphites in the production process, which means they are less likely to contribute to hangovers.

"So if you don’t react well to sulphites you could be saying good riddance to hangovers with Lidl’s Organic Prosecco Spumante."

Unfortunately, Lidl Ireland confirmed that the prosecco will not visit Irish stores for the festive season.
