Back a UK Success Story
Back UK Spirits
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 spirits by freezing duty for the length of parliament, then reforming it.

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

With more than £10 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 a duty increase would put this success at risk. Freezing and then fixing duty for good would support further growth, encouraging more investment and innovation in all corners of the UK.

Great to welcome Theresa Villiers @DefraGovUK to Dalmunach #Distillery today, to show her some of the great work the #ScotchWhisky... industry is doing to preserve the #environment and work towards #netzero. @Pernod_Ricard

More than 60% of UK distilleries plan to increase staff numbers over the next 12 months, as the spirits boom continues ⬆️

But... if spirits duty were to be increased, only 12% would hire more staff 🔽

Back jobs. Back UK spirits. #FixDuty by freezing and reforming it.

70% of UK spirits producers plan to increase their exports over the next 12 months.

We can’t put this growth at risk.

That's ... why the UK @spiritsalliance is asking the Chancellor to #FixDuty - first by freezing it, then reforming it
