I see Gordons have introduced a new alcohol free gin. It seems to be selling for more than the standard 40% version.
Considering that the duty on a one litre bottle is £11.50 isn't that rather expensive?

It's called market pricing.
Manufacturers are in business to make money. I call it rather clever to introduce an alcohol free product at the time of year when a lot of people are trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Even more clever to get away with charging a high price for it.
Long live capitalism!

"Clean" Gin! Emphasis. Which rather suggests Gordon's other products may not be :ohmy:
Quite Frankly. Anyone who buys Juniper Flavoured Water at £20/litre. Needs their head examined. Snob Toffs excluded >> naturally.
If they're happy. I'm happy. The Exchequer picks up a tidy £11.50!

Duty only paid on the "full fat" version not the alcohol free.

Anyone want to buy a phoneless cord?

Who are you fooling except yourself. Why not a soda water over ice with a slice of lemon or lime and kid yourself it's alcohol.
