New Minimum Alcohol Pricing Laws
A new law has been introduced in Scotland which stipulates the minimum price alcohol can be sold for. It aims to target problem drinking and save lives from alcoholism. This will not have any effect on the vast majority of bottles sold at Just Whisky Auctions, but there are instances each month where this law would be broken.
The minimum unit price for alcohol will start on 1 May 2018.
From that date, the minimum price of alcohol will be 50p per unit. Anyone with a licence to sell alcohol won't be allowed to sell it cheaper than this.
To comply with the law we have been forced to introduce a 'starting price' for all alcoholic Lots in the auction. This means that a 70cl bottle of 40% alcohol cannot be sold for less than £14.00.
All items will have a start price to prevent this law from being broken.
