Aldi has scored another top accolade for of its own brand spirits.

The discount supermarket has proven its worth at the International Wine and Spirits Challenge awards once again when not one, not two, but five of their whiskeys took home awards.

The retailers own-label Glen Marnoch Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Glen Marnoch Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky were awarded Silver Outstanding medals.

Meanwhile the Southern Belle, Clarke's Bourbon Whisky and Highland Black 8 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky received Silvers.

That's not all, the discount retailer achieved 16 awards for its spirits range in total.

It seems that the UK's thirst for Scotch whisky is on the rise as there are now 117 licensed distilleries that produce it.

In 2015 alone 85 million bottles of the spirit were sold, contributing £5 billion to the UK economy.

What may surprise customers even more is the price of these award-winning whiskeys, a bottle of any of the three Silver Outstanding winners will set you back less than £20.

Chevalier Cognac VS retails for just £14.99 while Glen Marnoch Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky and the Glen Marnoch Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky can both be picked up for £17.99.

This is the third medal of the year for the Highland Black 8 Year Old Scotch Whisky having already won a Master award at the Scotch Whisky Masters and a Silver medal at the International Spirits Challenge earlier this year.
