That doesn't sound like they're talking about the American version of Aldi's.  

 

IIRC, the international stores are more like a Wegman's level of quality rather than the discount places here.  Two brothers, two separate companies, etc.

Yeah.

I think Trader Joes is what the upscale brother called the US stores of his firm because Aldi's was already taken.  I'd look for those whisky's at Trader Joes, probably.

We have been drinking Members Mark vodka lately.  Great mixing vodka, at a great price.  I believe it's $14 for a handle.

They have spiced and regular rum too.  I need to get some white rum, and based on the vodka, I am going to give it a go.  My current spiced rum is Lady Bligh, so I should probably give the Sam's brand a go there too.

Saw that on the TV news last night... then at the end of the story, they said it's not available in US...

 

The 2 brothers split their parents German grocery company to become Aldi Nord (North) and Aldi Süd (South). 

 

Aldi Nord operates Trader Joe's stores in the US.

 

Aldi Süd operates Aldi stores in the US.

 

I can't find any reference to which Aldi makes the Scotch. I'm disappointed that we can't get them. Not a big Scotch drinker, but I'd like to try them at that price!
