Aldi is selling 'hangover free' prosecco and we need it in our lives immediately
Drinking is fun. Hangovers are not.
That's a pretty universally accepted take among those who drink alcohol. You have to take the rough with the smooth, like most things in life. There's not really any way around the hangover, other than drinking a lot of water or being one of those lucky people who just 'doesn't get them'.
But Aldi is trying. With their new Organic Prosecco, the supermarket chain has brought out a 'hangover free' sparkling wine in their UK stores for £8 and we need it here in Ireland ASAP.
Due to it containing fewer sulphite preservatives than a normal bottle of bubbly, it is thought that it doesn't cause such an intense hangover.
Sulphite preservatives are used to keep wine fresher for longer, which is great, until the day after you drink it. Apparently, they are one of the contributing factors to a sore head the day after a heavy night.
This organic bubbly is sourced from the Corvezzo family's 150-hectare estate, 30km north-east of Venice.
No pesticides or herbicides used in the vineyard where the grapes are grown and the grapes are also hand picked. The winery is also committed to using renewable energy wherever possible.
With people already whispering about party season, this drink could be the way to go, especially if you're working the day after a party.
