Best supermarket liqueurs for Christmas 2022

I do love a little glass of chilled, creamy liqueur in the run up to Christmas, and it almost wouldn’t be Christmas without it for me. How about you?

For 2022, the supermarkets have brought back a number of old favourites – nostalgia rules when there’s an economic downturn – and they’ve introduced a few new ones for the more adventurous.

You’re in for a treat today: each of these supermarket own-brand offerings has won at least two top awards, most of which were in blind taste tests, including several gold medals and first prizes. Feast your eyes on the top seven I’ve picked out.
