Bargain Hunter: Timing is everything in making big savings on beer, wine and whisky
Drink prices can vary by more 50 per cent over the course of a year, reckons the comparison website bringabottle.co.uk. So it has analysed the prices charged for the top 25 bestselling alcoholic drinks to work out the best time of the year to buy them.
For example, buying a bottle of Lanson Black Label champagne in December would save £17.51 on the highest price.
Beer or whisky? The best time to buy Stella Artois or Foster's is in June, while Jack Daniel's reaches its lowest price in April.
What bargains are coming up? The site predicts that Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay wine will fall to its lowest price – around a fiver – in the third week of August.

Prices melt with deals on frozen food at M&S
With summer here, M&S has a range of offers on new frozen food, including buy one pack and get a second half price on ice creams, lollies and frozen yoghurts.
For instance, a pack of eight frozen yogurt sticks coated in pineapple, red berry, mango and raspberry sorbets (pictured above) costs £3, but you will then get the chance to get a second pack for £1.50.
The biggest saving is on a tub of Marks & Spencer's Ultimate Colombian Coffee Ice Cream, which costs £4.50, allowing you to get a second tub for just £2.25.
The range is on offer until 1 September.
One problem crossed off the list if you're moving
Moving home is expensive and distracting enough as it is, and comparing the costs of different removal firms only adds to the burden.
To help, Aussie Man & Van has launched a fixed- price national removals service, with the amount you pay governed by how much notice you give.
If you plan ahead and can fix a moving date two weeks in advance, you can get one of the firm's containers – which is then sealed and attached to a van once you've filled it up – for just 299 plus VAT. If you can only give a day's notice, the price increases to £499 plus VAT. You can get full details at manandvan.biz
Not using your car? Rent it out and cut your premiums
If you have a car or van you don't need for a few days, you can rent it out through a peer-to-peer service.
And to make the idea more attractive, easyCar Club has launched a deal with Zenith Insurance where you'll get a rebate on your premium your vehicle every day it is rented out. The offer is open to anyone with a Zenith policy who lists their vehicle with easyCar Club. Details at carclub.easycar.com/zenith.
