Black Friday may be behind us for another 12 months, but there are still some fabulous deals kicking around so we've compiled them below in our guide to the best Black Friday alcohol deals around.
One of our favourite whiskies here at Louder is the ever-dependable Talisker 10 single malt from the rugged and beautiful isle of Skye. Amazon have knocked the price down from £44 to just £28 to mark the big sales weekend (opens in new tab) - and that really is a tasty deal. Expect lots of smoke and fruit to tempt you taste buds. We might have even bought a couple of bottles... but don't tell anyone!
So before stocking up for the festive season, keep this page bookmarked as we'll be bringing you some of our favourites at reduced prices and we'll also be highlighting all our favourite Cyber Monday alcohol deals very soon.

Black Friday music deals: UK whisky deals
Ardbeg Monsters of Smoke: Was
£39, now £31.96 (opens in new tab)
This 3x20cl pack is a great way to try three of Ardbeg's core range without splashing out on full bottles. Inside you’ll find small bottles of the Ardbeg 10, Ardbeg An Oa and Ardbeg Wee Beastie. Nab a pack from Amazon with 18% off.
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban: Was
64.29, now £45 (opens in new tab)
Glenmorangie’s whisky has recently undergone a rebrand which has split opinion. Thankfully, the bottle contents remain magic - and this is one of their best-loved. Matured in a mixture of ex-bourbon and port casks, this is a decadent and tasty drop. Buy from Amazon.
Talisker 10: Was
£44, now £28 (opens in new tab)
Talisker’s owners Diageo have rightly come under fire for bumping the price of the Talisker 18 to a ridiculous three-figure sum, but this deal on the 10 year old at Amazon proves the world hasn’t gone completely mad. Less than 30 notes for a classic single malt is hard to beat.
Isle Of Raasay: Was
£60.95, now £51.80 (opens in new tab)
Isle Of Raasay are one of Scotland’s newer distilleries and are doing amazing things. This is lightly peated spirit but there’s added complexity from the use of rye whiskey, fresh Chinkapin and first fill Bordeaux red wine casks. The bottle is possibly the best in whisky too.

£418.90, £278.90 (opens in new tab)

Diplomatico Reserva: Was
£43.95, now £36.50 (opens in new tab)
One of our favourite rums here at Louder is the sweet and delicious Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. This is a great sipper and is definitely worth a space on your home bar. Buy from Amazon.
El Dorado 12: Was
£34.94, now £29.99 (opens in new tab)
You can’t go wrong with any bottle from the El Dorado range - the 21 year old is amazing - but when it comes to bang for your buck, the 12 is hard to beat.
Doorly’s 12: Was
£47.25, now £37.99 (opens in new tab)
Another top deal on Amazon is on the extremely sippable Doorly’s 12 year old Barbados rum. This is a cocktail staple but can also be enjoyed neat.

The Botanist Islay Gin: Was
£37, now £27.99 (opens in new tab)
If you’re looking for something a little different, give this gin a whirl. Distilled at the famous Bruichladdich distillery on Islay (better known for its excellent whisky), The Botanist uses 22 botanicals from the island which results in a truly unique gin. Grab a bottle from Amazon.
Tarquin's Cornish Dry Gin: Was

A brilliant gin from which used botanicals from the Cornish coast, including violets which give this gin a twist all of its own. Save a few quid on a bottle at Amazon.
Bombay Sapphire: Was
£35, now £25 (opens in new tab)
One of the most recognisable bottles out there, Bombay Sapphire thankfully tastes as good as it looks thanks to the use of 10 botanicals in its make up. Makes a brilliant G&T and a canny cocktail. Buy from Amazon with a tenner off.
Cotswolds Dry Gin: Was
£37, now £30 (opens in new tab)
Cotswolds are making waves in the whisky world for their excellent single malt - and their gin is also well worth a closer look especially with £7 off at Waitrose. Botanicals including pink grapefruit, lavender and lime zest are used.
Tanqueray London Gin: Was
£26, now £20 (opens in new tab)
Gin for £20 is not to be sniffed at, especially when it carries the Tanqueray name. It’s flavour is boosted by the fact it’s been bottled at 43.1% ABV and should be a staple on your bar. Buy from Amazon.
Edinburgh Gin Lemon & Jasmine: Was
£28, now £18 (opens in new tab)
Some companies like Edinburgh Gin have shifted the landscape of contemporary gin by highlighting flavours outwith traditional botanicals. We like this lemon-heavy gin as it makes a spectacular long drink if you add bitter lemon and ice. Amazon have it on sale with 36% off.
Black Friday alcohol deals: When is Black Friday
This year's Black Friday will take place on November 25, with sales continuing right the way through the weekend and into Cyber Monday on November 28. While the majority of Black Friday alcohol deals will take place in the UK - mainly because of state alcohol laws in the US - America will see some deals filter through.
Raise a glass to Louder this Black Friday where not only will be be bringing you the best deals on alcohol, but we'll also be covering a whole range of tech and more including guides to Black Friday Bluetooth speaker deals, Black Friday music deals, Black Friday vinyl deals and Black Friday wireless headphone deals.
Black Friday alcohol deals: What to expect
While we wait for the big delivery truck full of booze to park, we'll stick our nose out and make a few tasty predictions about what you can expect to see once the Black Friday alcohol deals start to filter through. Judging by past Black Fridays, there's sure to be big savings on single malts such as Talisker and Old Pulteney, money off blends from the Johnnie Walker range, bourbons including Wild Turkey, Irish whiskies like Bushmills, Doorly's rum, Tarquin's gin, BrewDog beers and much more.
How to spot a good Black Friday alcohol deal
The price of spirits - especially whisky - has been on the rise over the last 12 months putting some of our favourite bottles beyond our reach. For example, Lagavulin 16 used to retail around the £50 mark, but you'll struggle to get it for less than £75 these days. And Talisker 18? Well, that's gone from the £80 mark to a frankly outrageous £185! Let's hope we see a couple of deals on these bottles in particular.
More generally, we recommend finding the usual price of a bottle so you'll be able to see straight away the money you'll be saving. Also keep your eye on multi-buy deals. We've seen money off PerfectDraft kegs at Beer Hawk before, for example, so buying two or three could bet you a decent saving.
We'll bring you the best deals here, so keep this page bookmarked if your after a Black Friday alcohol deal.
Where to find the best Black Friday alcohol deals
Aside from keeping this page in your bookmarks folder, where else will you be able to find a Black Friday alcohol deal? It's worth pointing out that UK customers will have a far better chance of grabbing a deal, and that's largely down to the US state laws on alcohol. Some states can be shipped to, while others are out of bounds. In the UK, most of the major supermarkets will be cutting booze prices on the big-name brands, while Amazon UK will have savings on everything from spirits and wine, to beer and fizz.
BrewDog are bound to have money off through their official site, while as mentioned previously, Beer Hawk often have deals on their keg selection for the ever-popular PerfectDraft machine.
Black Friday alcohol deals: Last year's deals
Here's a selection of some of the Black Friday alcohol deals that caught our eye last year. Let's hope we see similar - or better - bargains in November.
The Botanist Islay Gin: From £37 to £28.99
If you’re looking for something a little different, give this gin a whirl. Distilled at the famous Bruichladdich distillery on Islay (better known for its excellent whisky), The Botanist uses 22 botanicals from the island which results in a truly unique gin. Let's hope Amazon have another sale like this.
Talisker 10 single malt whisky: Was
£44, now £26.79 (opens in new tab)
Talisker 10 is a classic and a dram that's a good gateway into the peaty/coastal side of Scottish single malt whisky. I always have a bottle in the cupboard, and at this price, I just might be grabbing another!
Jura 10 + 2 glasses: From £45 to £26.25
I finally made the journey to the isle of Jura from Islay back in the summer of 2020 and poked my head into the distillery. It’s a charming place and I let with several samples. If you can’t get there, then why not bring Jura to you. This was a great saving with gift set at Amazon.
Fettercairn 12: From £48 to £33.11
Fettercairn has been enjoying something of a renaissance, with their Warehouse batches selling out almost immediately. But if you want to get into this single malt, the 12, with its fruits notes, is a good place to start. This was on sale at Amazon.
Jack Daniel’s Gentlemen Jack: From £32 to £25.80
A step up from the standard Old No.7 bottle of Jack in our opinion, this offering from the famous Tennessee distillery boasts more flavour and aromas. This is a great sipper and also works well in a cocktail. Was on sale at Sainsbury's
Kraken Black Spiced Rum: From £25.96 to £20
A 70cl bottle of this spiced rum from the inky depths for just over 20 squid was a monster of a deal over at Amazon. It can be sipped neat, but it comes into its own when mixed and makes a mean Dark & Stormy - just add ginger beer, lime and ice.
BrewDog advent calendar: £39.95
Put the carbonation into Christmas with BrewDog's annual UK advent calendar release. Inside, there was 14 new 2021 beers, six new brews for the festive season and four online exclusives. It was available direct from BrewDog and we hope for more this year.
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label: But 6 get 25% off
There was a great deal at Sainsbury’s which was perfect if you were having a party over the festive season. Buy six bottles of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut Non Vintage Champagne and you’ll get 25% off. Each individual bottle costs £45.
