The UK spirits industry has played its part during the Covid-19 pandemic by supporting UK public services, producing hand sanitiser, donating millions to back the hospitality trade and supporting local communities across the UK.

Hear from distillers about the impact on their businesses here.

HMRC duty receipts over the last two years have shown the public finances benefit from providing the spirits industry with a stable tax regime. HMRC receipts were up by 8.3% in 2020/21 building on a 1.6% increase in 2019/20, with spirits receipts topping £4 billion for the first time.

Alongside increased revenue for the public purse, new investment supports the UK hospitality industry and the growing tourism industry for our spirits, which are a hallmark of quality across the globe for British produce.

We are calling on the Government to back this home grown industry and enable us to continue to support the UK economic recovery and British consumers.
