In case all the sale signs and aggressive marketing emails didn’t tip you off, a note: It’s Black Friday today.
Yup, it’s the day after Thanksgiving, and while we don’t celebrate turkey day, the UK has greedily snatched up the tradition of buying a tonne of discounted stuff.
But in among all the flatscreen TVs and blenders, there’s a section of deals you may not associate with Black Friday.
Guys – were you aware that Black Friday also includes a bunch of boozy offers on alcohol?
Our advice: Stock up now for all Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties. Feel really prepared and accomplished. Here are all the best Black Friday booze deals you should be aware of.

When and what is Cyber Monday?
Black Friday is not the end of the shopping chaos as there is also Cyber Monday to look forward to.
Originally created to encourage people to shop online rather than the usual rush to the shops on Black Friday, the day has become slightly redundant as most shopping is done online over the entire period now.
However, there will still be worthwhile and unique deals this Cyber Monday, on November 27.
With Black Friday deals now popping up as long as two weeks before the actual day and then spilling over into Cyber Monday, it is more of a shopping festival than a couple of individual days.
