Saw this advert in the Daily Star today - £14 for a litre of Bells, Malibu, Smirnoff, Bacardi, Gordon's or Morgan's Spiced.

Also the same price for 70cl of Jack Daniels which seems to beat both the Sainsbury's and Tesco's offer price!

I'm not sure how you spotted that amongst all the tits?
#6
hot price for JD - is this offer on now?
#7
Saw the 1ltr Smirnoff for £14 at Tesco at the weekend.
#8
Probably the best price you will get for JD, unless the 2 for £25 deal comes back
#9
Glad this has dropped, I nearly bought morgans at £17
#10
They are selling JD at Morrisons for £10 for 35cl at the moment so this is a great deal even compared to them. Shame I don't drink:-(

Old Samuel is a good compromise for the price, but never as good as JD.

As tempted as I am, I'm going to hold out in the hope of a 2 for £25-£26 offer that Tesco and Sainsburys usually do in the lead up to christmas. ;)
#13
so many drinks on offer, 1 litre of Captain morgans or Bacardi Spiced for the same price, but which one to go for?
#14
I bought Morgans spiced 2 days ago for an Xmas gift at £17...oh well :/
#15
I should buy as many as you can afford, because if Cameron has his way the price will rocket
#16
Always the same deals this time if year I expect the 2 for £25 shall be along soon, I'm holding out for that one
#17
Something makes you think cameron won't have his way? Stock up, hot price

I'm sure that they are thinking of introducing a minimum of 50p per unit charge.

That would make JD £14, so it wouldnt 'rocket'.

Dont think JD was included in that last year, think it was 2010.

There are a hell of a lot more people than just Cameron who wants minimum alcohol pricing. Though I'd be irritated myself, I'm not so self-absorbed that I can recognise having to pay a few quid more is probably worth the lives that will be saved because of it (and though I hate the branding of "big society" - that's what living in a society is all about, what's best for everyone, not just you).

Still don't understand how jacking up the price makes it 'safer'...
All that it implies is that it is ok for rich people to die from alcohol poisoning, but those less well off have to cough up more for their one bottle of sherry that they have a tipple from on a sunday as a 'treat'.

It doesnt make anything safer - Hopefully it make it more difficult for kids to go into an off licence and buy cheap alcohol. If the minimum price only achieves allowing pubs to compete with Supermarket prices then it will have achieved something IMO.

Having said all this 40p/unit is way too low.

Thought this would have got hotter considering that the offer at £15 went over 1200 degrees. Anyone picked some up?

I'm still on the hunt for the honey one.

Same but Tesco are selling the honey JD for £18...bit too expensive for what is a punt on my side (could not be to my taste). However Sainsburys have Jim Beam honey for £15, which is better but I'm still holding out...

Any idea how long this offer is on for?

Name a single person who has ever claimed it makes it "safer"...

Increasing the price reduces consumption, the less we drink the better the public health will be. As to your sherry scenario, the cheapest bottle in Tesco at the moment is £6.50. Under proposed regulations, that will likely be £6.75. If you have a "tipple" once a week then a price rise of 25p is nothing (plus I doubt the kind of people who rarely drink typically buy the dirt cheap alcohol that this is going to affect the most).

luckily by sheer coincidence the minimum unit on alcohol pricing ( supposedly to save us from ourselves) will swell the government coffers substantially .. call me mr cynical

Oh, so you're an alcoholic/binge drinker? Because that is what it's for - not saving everyone "from themselves"...

Not to mention that if it's increased revenue that they want, a much better plan would be to increase the duty paid on it instead of introducing minimum pricing...

Raising the unit cost of alcohol will achieve nothing except make the government more money from tax.
Kids will still get alcohol, if price goes too dear it will just get shop lifted.
This is just another example of the conservatives screwing over the country again in "hidden taxes"
Just another thought, they raise the age to buy cigarettes and increased the price, has this stopped people smoking, or even stopped young people smoking? What it has done for certain is put more money in the governments pocket.
We need to be realistic alcohol has been around since the dawn of time, there will always be people who abuse it, so why " punish" the majority who enjoy a tipple now and again.

Yes... There is pretty conclusive proof that increasing the price of cigarettes reduces smoking rates, and I see no reason why that won't be the same with alcohol.

Yet again with the stupid "tipple every now and again" argument! If you drink so little of it then why on earth is a small price increase such a burden!? And as I said to the last person, are people who only have a little bit every now and again really "treating" themselves with the cheapest alcohol they can find?
#36
The proposals put the minimum price per unit at 45p. This would mean a 1l bottle of JD would be £18. 1l bottle of Morgans Spiced would be £15.75

No, increasing the price reduces comsumption by the people that can't afford the increase.
If you are 'rolling in it' and go out every night of the week and get absolutely bladdered on bottle of expensive wine, or fine brandy, or whatever is it going to stop you if your £80 bottle goes up slightly in price? (Not that it would, as it will already be above the minimum charge). - No, it won't.

If you go out now and buy the cheapest stuff you can get your hands on, because you have the intention of getting wasted on a Friday night, will a price increase stop you? No, it won't, if that is your intention you will still find a way to satisfy that.

So, as you say, no one is claiming it will make drinking 'safer'. The aim is to reduce binge drinking, and the (apparently) associated drink related crimes...
So lets take a look at Scotland where multi-buy deals have already been banned. Listening to a radio report tonight, has it stopped binge drinking? No, what happens now is people wait, then when there is a 'price rollback' or similar non-multi-buy type offer they go and 'stock up'... effectively binge buying, if not drinking.

I don't paraticularly care whether the price goes up or not as I don't drink a huge amount of alcohol, but I wish the Government wouldn't try and pass it off as being in the interests of 'public health'.

Which decreases consumption... And I haven't looked into it, but I wouldn't be shocked if they kinda people who binge drink are the kind of people who are relatively poor anyway. And I'm sure they do stock up when the prices roll-back - so what? They won't be able to be rolled back that much any more should this take place.

It IS in the interests of public health... Again, if they just want more tax revenue then they would have just raised the taxes on it... All they'll be getting is slightly more VAT (most alcohol is around or above the suggested minimum price anyway) - not a huge deal.

My God the stupidity of some of the people on HUKD really worries me :|

How are the government coffers going to swell when sales are going to reduce? The expectation is that the Government will actually lose £200m in tax revenue from the reduced Alcohol sales.

For me the most positive outcome will be that people start to drink in pubs again. As the proposal is that pubs will not be affected by the minimum pricing maybe the breweries will actually see sense and start buying back some of the empty pubs then start selling their product at reasonable prices. And of course children won't be able to drink in pubs saving a whole new generation of potential alcoholics.

The only people who seem to be against this idea seem to be those it is trying to save.

Unfortunately, we live in a country that is simultaneously ignorant yet interested in politics. Hence the default view is to ramble about something you don't actually know about, while trying to shove in a rant about how evil politicians, the government or bankers are!
