Sainsburys cuts Baileys cost to £10 as Christmas supermarket booze wars begin

Shops are slashing the price of booze up and down the country as they compete for Brits to buy their stock for Christmas.

Sainsbury’s has cut the cost of a litre of Baileys down to just £10 after reducing it from £20.

Last month, Morrisons did the same and before that Tesco had a huge discount on the festive Irish Cream liqueur.

At the moment, the best bet for eagle-eyed shoppers looking for the classically Christmas tipple is still Sainsbury’s, with their offer lasting until December 8.

Competitors battling it out to make their booze the most tempting include Asda, which has 25% off any wine, champagne or Prosecco when you buy six bottles, reports The Sun.

Meanwhile, Tesco has got into the spirit by cutting litre bottles of Smirnoff Vodka to just £16 with a clubcard.

If you want to cash in on the £10 bottle of Baileys, you can head down to a store or buy it online.

But shoppers grabbing the deal over the website should be wary of the minimum order value of £25 and up to £4.50 for delivery to your door on top of the cost of the booze.

If you’re looking to buy a bottle for a present, you could be in the third of Brits who admit leaving their gifting to the last minute.

A study of 2,000 adults found that over a quarter of people have all their Christmas shopping done by the start of December, whilst others wait until a week or two before the big day.

Four in ten try to get all their presents bought and wrapped by the end of November – but most fail to actually do this.

The study also found the average Brit is expecting to spend £446 on Christmas presents and £256 on Christmas food – which is £167 more than last year.

Although supermarkets don’t guarantee festive discounts, there are likely many more to come and shoppers counting the pennies should keep an eye out.
