Price Of Gin and Tonic Will Increase
Bad news for all you gin and tonic fans as the new sugar tax will now push up the cost of your precious gin and tonic on a night out.
Tonic water has 9g of sugar in every 100ml and it now falls into the higher tax band. So, if you want your favourite drink on the weekend you may need to fork out a little extra…
It also means if you’re a fan of vodka and coke, you will also see a price increase.
According to the Independant.ie, the Budget will see a levy imposed on soft drinks with a sugar content that has more than 5g per 100ml.
It will be even higher for most sugary drinks that’s has more than 8g per 100ml.
