With Google Trends reporting spikes in searches for ‘At Home Bar’ and Aldi’s new Rattan Bar selling out in record time, it’s clear Brits are continuing to create their very own DIY backyard boozers.
But no bar is complete without a tipple or two. And to help eager at-home landlords build a dream watering-hole in the comfort of their home, Aldi is launching the ‘At-Home Bar’ Mixed Case; a selection of six must-have premium tipples from fizz to spirits, so households have all the essentials needed for their at-home bar – for a fraction of the price!
Aldi’s new premium ‘At-Home Bar’ drinks pack is under £70 and is being launched following the supermarket’s nationwide search for the ‘Best At-Home Bar’ last year, which saw an incredible 11,000 entries. Known for its award-winning and amazing value beers, wines and spirits range, Aldi went on the hunt for stylish pub gardens and swanky indoor gin bars. And to help show shoppers how they can make their own pubs and bars stand out, some of the self-made landlords have shared their expert tips and tricks.
Tommy and Lyndsay Castleman from Leicester, won the coveted cash prize for the most inventive at-home bar. The Duke of Wellington pub scooped top prize for its cosy and traditional home vibe – an ideal hub for unwinding and watching the footy. The couple shared their tips on what it takes to create an at-home bar; “The best at-home bars are all about personality! We wanted to dedicate this bar to a recently passed family member, so we filled it with memoirs including a self-portrait to help create a lovely space.”
The couple go on to state; “It’s important when hosting to have a selection of different spirits, wines and beers, so you can cater to all tastebuds. We always make sure our bar is fully stocked with glassware too, from wine glasses to tumblers for a decent G&T!”
Feeling inspired by these at-home bar creations? Why not make that special at-home bar creation a simple choice and order Aldi’s new ‘At Home Bar’ drinks pack; available online which includes six award-winning wines and spirits to help ensure the bar never runs dry.
