Aldi selling 1973 Napoleon Vintage Brandy worth £107 for £29.99 (and there's more)

6 November 2013

DSC_5929 Aldi is at it again, selling expensive booze for stupidly cheap. Basically, you can get a bottle of 1973 Napoleon Vintage Brandy, which would normally cost you £107 (if you bought it from a stockist with airs and graces). If you get it from Aldi, it'll cost you £29.99, which is a saving of over £77.

Insane.

There's more too. You can also get your hands on a bottle of 15-Year-Old El Dorado Rum for £36 (should be £44), Grand Cru Champagne NV for £22.99 (saving of £20) and Glen Orrin 30-Year-Old Whiskey for £54.99 (which is a whopping £80 cheaper than other retailers).

Last year, Aldi came top of a blind-tasting poll for Christmas puddings, with their £3.89 Connoisseur Christmas pudding. It seems, if you want a suave Christmas that is kind on the pocket, Aldi is where its at.

    What about the £100 it'll cost when Parking Eye inevitably try to fine you in the post for having the audacity of parking and being a customer?

    Each store will have a single digit number of bottles that get sold to the manager's mates 30 seconds after the store opens.

    @Lord Kibble I quite like Aldi but you're right that this is one of their stupid tricks. They used to do this with cheap PC's and you literally have to befriend a member of staff to get them to hold on to one of the single digit supply to collect it within 15 minutes of shop opening. I'm surprised that it hasn't backfired spectacularly.

    Got three bottles of brandy at the Dunfermline branch this morning. There were twelve on the shelf, and the assistant said three was no customer quota so I could have scooped the lot.

    "What about the £100 it’ll cost when Parking Eye inevitably try to fine you in the post for having the audacity of parking and being a customer?" Don't pay and just ignore the threatening letters and demands, They will go away eventually. Got two tickets in the summer, they sent laughable red warning letters (wooer) and threats from the bailiffs. Everything went in the bin.

    Last year, Aldi came top of a blind-tasting poll for Christmas puddings. Just dont buy their sausage rolls, they are truly awful. My nearest Aldi is 12 miles away, so I wont be making the journey on the off chance I can get to buy cheap/expensive booze.

For them to legally claim that money back, they need to prove loss of earnings, which means they need to prove you took the last available parking space and held it, while other paying customers couldn't get a spot, and even if they manage that, they are only entitled to what they lost out on, so what, £5-£10 ? And when the judge throws it out of court they need to pay the legal fees. They wont take you to court, you just don't reply to them, don't even argue it, bin it, because then they dont even know if they have the correct address, and to check that out costs them even more money. If you get fined by the council, pay it, if you get fined by a private company like Private Eye, bin it.

    Oh yeah and their threats of sending bailiffs round are false too, they can't legally send a bailiff without a court order, which they can't get unless they take u to court and you dont turn up, which they wont do because its more risk to them than to you.

    How noble of you Ross.

    lol trish I'm not giving some official con-artists (which is what they are, they outright lie about what they can legally do to threaten you) £100 out of my hard earned money because I over-ran what THEY think is the time limit for me being in a store, which I'm already paying money to for goods, they're bullys, liers, and con-men.
  • Mike O.
    No need to defend yourself Ross, anyone with an ounce of sanity is with you.

    What planet is Trish on? Private parking enforcers are nothing but villains and spivs trying to bully people into paying fines which aren't even legal. They can't clamp any more so resort to pathetic threatening letters pretending they have some clout. They're a joke, into the bin with their shite and let's hope they go to the wall owing millions to people with real, legal clout.
