We searched high and low to bring you a list of the cheapest alcohol you will find in Durham
Our handy cheat-sheet is 100% science
As a student, a big part of the weekly budget is dedicated to alcohol. To maximize the profits of your student loan, we've put together a study showing where you can buy the cheapest alcohol in Durham. Whether this alcohol will give you a stomach ulcer, however, is a different story.
We looked at the price in the three main Durham student alcohol providers: Tesco, Sainsbury's, and Dunelm. We divided alcohol into four major groups: spirits, beer, wine, and cider. All in all, more effort has gone into this than any summative.
1) The cheapest drink in Durham is Dunelm's 'White Ace'. At 20p per unit of alcohol, it is very closely followed by Crofter's cider from Tesco, which might be less disgusting.
2) The cheapest vodka you can get in Durham is by far Nikita vodka (a staple of the Durham student experience).
3) The only alcohol on this list that is cheaper in Dunelm and Sainsbury's than in Tesco is Lambrini.
