Cheap Supermarket Baileys Dupe Named Better Than The Real Thing

Hello, Deal Hunters!

Get your festive drinks sorted without breaking the bank! We've got some amazing news for you. Alice Grahns at The Sun reported that in a recent blind taste test, by which some supermarket brands stood up impressively against the Christmas classic, Baileys.

The rundown:

Baileys remains king with a score of 76%. But Lidl's Deluxe Irish Cream trails by just a mere point and it's £2 cheaper. Currently priced at £7.99 for 70cl- that’s £1.14 per 100ml.

If you're loyal to Baileys, don't pay full price. Right now, Asda, Tesco, and Sainsbury’s have 70cl bottles for £10. Got a Clubcard or Nectar card! That's your ticket to the best deals.


On the hunt for alternatives here's how some others fared:

- M&S Irish Cream Liqueur: 73%, £10 for 70cl.

- Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference: 73%, £12.50 for 70cl.

- Morrisons The Best: 70%, £16 for 1L.

- Aldi Specially Selected: 69%, £8.49 for 70cl.

All the liqueurs in this test are 17% ABV. The score considers 50% taste, 20% aroma, 15% mouthfeel, and 15% appearance.

To wrap this up, Tom Church, Co-Founder of shopping community LatestDeals.co.uk, says, "It's incredible to see supermarkets step up their game every year, offering quality alternatives at great prices. Remember, a higher price doesn't always guarantee superior taste."

Cheers and shop smart! 🥂 Always drink responsibly.
