A SUPERMARKET has slashed prices on premium Scottish whisky brands as Scots prepare to spend Hogmanay celebrating at home.

Level 4 coronavirus restrictions come in on Boxing Day across all of mainland Scotland, which will see hospitality venues closed and people told to stay at home as much as possible.

With the tight restrictions meaning New Year will be like none we’ve had before, Morrisons has reduced prices across its whisky range to help people bring in the bells from the comfort of their homes.

The deals will be available in 60 Scottish stores until New Year’s Eve and will see brands like Laphroaig reduced to £20 per bottle, a saving of £16.

Charles de Villers champagne is also half price while Sorso prosecco has a third off.

The other deals include The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve at £20, a £12 saving, Highland Park at £20, a £14 saving and Glenmorangie at £20, a £16 saving.

Speaking about Hogmanay earlier this month at a Scottish Government coronavirus briefing, Chief Constable Iain Livingstone (below) said: “The key thing is for people to keep on doing the right thing.

The National:

“We’ve asked them repeatedly, our fellow citizens … you should not be gathering in large groups and the same applies and still applies as we go into 2021.”

He went on: “It’s the public health imperative to do the right thing, to encourage each other, encourage your neighbours, encourage your family to do the right thing.”

Officers will be stationed in “large public spaces”, the chief constable said, to ensure gatherings do not take place in town and city centres to ring in the new year.

He said: “We will be in a position to continue to support the people to do the right thing as we go into 2021.”
