Title says £45 a bottle
Bought a box from my local Aldi this morning!
Won't be that long til we have minimum alcohol pricing in Wales. Deals like this will be folklore. Misery for responsible healthy drinkers who never need to access NHS care. Joy for those whose lives are wrecked by alcohol related problems. Will the minimum price really affect consumption and are the predicted figures by Welsh Assembly correct ? Selfishly I enjoy a bargain box of Stella but would like to believe we could make a difference to the thousands of lives wrecked by bargain booze.
A law to set a minimum price for selling alcohol in Wales has been unveiled.

Ministers believe tackling excessive drinking could save a life a week and mean 1,400 fewer hospital admissions a year.

Pricing is seen as a "missing link" in public health efforts, alongside better awareness and treatment.

Under a 50p-a-unit formula, a typical can of cider would be at least £1 and a bottle of wine at least £4.69.

A typical litre of vodka, for example, would have to cost more than £20.

The Welsh Government has not yet decided what the price will be, however.
The research has helped produce a formula based on the percentage strength of the alcohol and its volume to develop the minimum unit price (MUP).

While alcohol consumption levels have been falling in recent years, health officials are concerned that:

Binge drinking is still a problem with young people; there is also an issue with the over-50s
There were 463 alcohol-related deaths in Wales in 2015-16
There were 54,000 alcohol-related hospital admissions
Cheap drink in supermarkets and other licensed stores is the main target and the law will also address the issue of special offers in its fine detail.

Alcohol sold below 50p per unit makes up 72% of the beer sales in Welsh shops and supermarkets, 78% of the cider sales, 42% of the wine and 66% of the spirits.
The research suggests that although high-risk drinkers make up only a quarter of people who drink alcohol, they drink 72% of all alcohol consumed and account for 65% of all spending.

"There is a very clear and direct link between levels of excessive drinking and the availability of cheap alcohol," said Public Health Minister Rebecca Evans.

"So we need to take decisive action now to address the affordability of alcohol, as part of wider efforts to tackle alcohol-related harm."

'Decades' to reduce alcohol-related deaths
Sporty people more likely to drink more alcohol
Wales tops binge-drinking statistics
It has been claimed it could:

Save the NHS £6.5m a year by reducing the impact on hospitals
Boost the Welsh economy by £44m a year by reducing workplace absence and crime.
Researchers said 42% of the alcohol bought by high-risk drinkers in poverty is of the cheaper variety - against 21% for moderate drinkers in poverty.
But officials believe more affluent high-risk drinkers will also respond to price changes and they insisted it was not a tax but a tool to change behaviour.
Chief Medical Officer Dr Frank Atherton said they were not the "fun police" or the "nanny state" but they could not wash their hands of a significant public health issue.

"It will have a small impact on moderate drinkers," he added.

"The most substantial effects will be experienced by harmful and hazardous drinkers, who are more likely to consume cheaper and higher-strength alcohol products."
Anyone know if a law to set minimum alcohol pricing in Wales is being considered?
