Aldi launches $20 hot cross bun gin for Easter sale


We love hot cross buns, so much so we’ve infused the famous spiced flavour into some of our favourite things.

From ice cream to chocolate, there’s no end to the sticky bun creations.

Australians taste for the traditional Easter treat has even prompted supermarkets to sell the popular item all year round.

But now we can get our hot cross bun fix in a whole new way – drinking it.

Aldi Australia has just announced stores will be selling Hot Cross Bun Gin Liqueur as part of 2021’s festivities.

The boozy product costs $19.99 and can be served with a mixer or on the rocks for those who want to experience the full flavour.

“We are proud of the quality and affordable products we bring customers, but also the innovative and unique range we can offer Australians – and the Hot Cross Bun Gin Liqueur is no exception,” Nicole Higgins, Aldi Australia’s shopping expert said.

“Crafted with the traditional spices found in your favourite Easter treat, simply mix with soda, sparkling wine or serve on the rocks.”

Nicole added that you could serve the festive tipple with a warm hot cross bun or even a brioche variety for “an extra Easter indulgence”.

The Manchester Drinks Co Hot Cross Bun Gin Liqueur hits stores on February 24 and judging from reaction to Aldi’s previous limited edition alcohol items, we suspect it will sell out fast.

It is produced in the UK and was released for the first time this year, with a spokesperson for the brand stating the gin was “lovingly crafted” until it had the right balance of flavours to “capture the much-loved flavours of a hot cross bun”.
