Why is alcohol so expensive?
The problem Britain has and the reason why alcohol is so expensive is simple... VAT & Duty!
It's paid to the government any time alcohol is sold. Breweries pay duty when selling their produce, then Pubs, Off Licences, Supermarkets (Anyone who sells alcohol to the public) also have to pay duty. Now it's time you learned how much! Bottles of Vodka at 40% ABV probably cost around £10 (if not more) from the Supermarket. £7.75 of that goes straight to the government in duty.
If we didn't have to pay VAT or duty, we might be able to enjoy a bottle of Vodka for £2.25.
The Solution... Make it yourself!
You can start smashing supermarket prices in 3 easy steps from only £1.76 per bottle or 80p per pint. All you need to start brewing is one Equipment kit and one ingredients kit.
As you can see from the numbers above, brewing your own alcohol from home doesn't have to be expensive. And if you currently; regularly buy alcohol from the supermarket or any other source, you're going to be making huge savings as well as having the satisfaction of learning a new skill and having control over the taste and strength of what you are drinking.
To buy all the equipment you'll need for your current and future projects you would be looking at £1.31 per bottle or 53p per pint of alcohol, including steriliser and bottles.
Depending on which drink you are choosing to make (Wine, Beer, Cider, Spirit etc.) your ingredients will cost as little as 45p per bottle or 27p per pint, including all required chemicals.
Mix them all together with help and guidance from us and 4 days to 2 weeks time, you'll be drinking your favourite drink from as little as £1.76 per bottle or 80p per pint.
**The equipment can be used again and again without incurring any extra costs so any future projects can be produced for only the cost of the ingredients.
