Alcohol Duty Review

The Government has proposed a new system to calculate alcohol duty (tax) which we believe unfairly places a significant financial burden on to the wine and spirit sector.

Alcohol duty is set to increase by 30% for some products if the proposals go ahead. That’s why we are calling on businesses and consumers to contact their MP to influence the outcome of the consultation, and ensure that prices of wines and spirits are kept down.
This is a unique opportunity to influence the alcohol duty system, and we need to ensure we leave no stone unturned if we are to shape the outcome.
We are asking wine and spirit businesses and consumers to do all you can to reinforce and amplify our message, by writing to your MPs, getting engaged on social media, and of course responding to the consultation. This hub contains all the resources so it’s easy for you to do so.
If you need any further information or help, please get in touch with Samuel (
