Fix duty

The UK spirits industry is booming. We can’t afford to put this great British success story at risk.

That’s why we’re telling the Government to back the industry by reducing the burden on spirits duty.

Support the UK Spirits Alliance today and tell Government to fix spirits duty

With more than £13 billion in sales annually, UK spirits supports tens of thousands of jobs and generates more than £4 billion a year for the economy.

But success isn’t just about today: from the traditional British pub to micro-distilleries, festivals to pop-ups, the drinks industry is transforming and spirits are the drink of the future.

Government must now fix the duty system to provide our industry the confidence and security to invest and grow.

Our contribution to the economy has been recognised by government in recent years through a stable, common sense approach to the duty regime. This has encouraged investment, growth and innovation.

The UK spirits industry spans the length and breadth of the country. The number of gin distilleries has more than doubled in the last five years. In the 2018 Budget, the government recognised our contribution to the economy by freezing duty.

As a result, revenues for the public purse are expected to increase.


But an unstable duty regime puts this success at risk. Fixing duty for good would support further growth, encouraging more investment and innovation in all corners of the UK.


If you support a fair duty system for spirits, support the UK Spirits Alliance
