Alcohol tax was increased 23,08 SEK to 25,17 SEK per Litre of wine (Alc. Vol. in between 8,5 – 15,5%). Due to this tax increase we as well as many other importers had to adjust pricing from January 2015. You will also notice this on new tender requests, and our pricing that it is slightly lower ex cellar price wise.
Due to that the SEK is getting more and more weaken against Euro and Dollar, we will probably see price changes in the year for existing listings in the Swedish market. In last 5 years’ time, we have seen 2 tax increases on alcohol tax, and each time it has been increased by about 7%.
