Christmas has come early thanks to Lidl, who are now selling magnums of champagne and prosecco from just £12.99.
What better way to celebrate Christmas or toast the arrival of 2018 at the end of this month than with a glass of bubbles? And not just any glass of fizz either – boozy bubbles poured from a GIANT bottle of champagne or prosecco.
Ensuring their shoppers have a fizz-tastic festive season, Lidl have announced that they will be selling the giant magnums of champagne and prosecco – the equivalent of 1.5 litres of fizz – from now until stocks last.
Claiming to be almost half the price of magnums at supermarkets such as Marks & Spencer and Waitrose, the Lidl Champagne Magnum could be yours for just £29.99, whereas you can get your hands on the giant bottle of prosecco for just £12.99.

Richard Bampfield, Lidl UK’s Master of Wine, described the supermarket’s magnum of champagne as ‘perfect for Christmas festivities,’ and at under £30, it’s sure not to break the bank either.
‘If an occasion is made more special by a bottle of champagne, imagine the impact of a magnum!’ said Richard. ‘Perfect for Christmas festivities, this is an attractive and tasty champagne with aromas of fresh bread and red apples with a dry finish. This wine can be enjoyed either on its own or with savoury canapés.’
If prosecco is your tipple of choice, the Lidl magnum is decribed as ‘lovely and light’ with, ‘a moreish pear-scented quality and not too dry for those who like a juicy, fruity fizz’. Sounds good to us!
