Aldi is selling a gallon jeroboam of port equal to six 'normal' bottles

Christmas is a time for port. Bottles and bottles of port.

Those who like their tipples dark and fortified might get through a few standard bottles over the festive period. But could even the most hardline port drinkers get through this?

Aldi has started selling a huge bottle of port – equal to six regular bottles – just in time for leaving out for Santa.

A bottle of champagne this size would technically be referred to as a rehoboam – as it holds 4.5 litres – but most people know these large lads as a jeroboam. That 4.5 litres is a literal gallon.

It costs £99, which is fairly steep. But then, a similar sized bottle in Harvey Nichols would set you back £265, so it’s still a great deal if you’re going to drink it.

The 10-year-old Tawny Port is described by Aldi as ‘rich and elegant combining aromas of fruit, a hint of nuttiness and subtle notes of chocolate, oak wood and butterscotch.’

It’ll be available online only on the Aldi website when it releases nearer Christmas.

If port isn’t your thing but you still want to have a boozy Christmas, Aldi is also selling wine or fizz advent calendars.
