Surely it's the sugar tax to blame? People say they should have increased the price instead of changing the recipe, but then when they do release a full-sugar drink people complain about the price. Can't have it both ways.

I think around £1.50 would be a fair price for this, or perhaps £1 on special offer. Maybe it'll come down.

A.G.Barr the makers of Iron Bru made 120 million pounds profit in the 6 months to July this year, Enough said!

Sugar tax on drinks with a sugar content over 8g per 100ml is 24p, irn bru 1901 has a sugar content of 88gms 😳🤪 so the tax is only 24p...they are charging £1.99 for the 1901 bottle and £1.00 for the normal so as a company are charing 75p for the privilege of drinking more sugar. :/ Shameful
Has anyone seen this in England yet? I know the Chrimbo Juice (a slightly weaker Fiery Irn-Bru for the connosieurs) has made it down as I have bought some in Home Bargains in Norwich.

My mistake I thought we paid VAT in the uk on soft drinks. So the sugar tax of 24p is less than the vat we used to pay on the same drink?

We do, but still we pay 20% VAT on everything
Even if it were 60p they're still charging £1 more
Youre basic paying £1 more because it's got more sugar and gimmick of being 1902
It still only costs 24p more to make

So say a regular version is £1 after tax 80p before VAT which goes to the store and (Barr makes money from the shops buying they make money no matter what even if the shop has to give them away) so this item should be £1.04 before VAT and £1.30 or whatever after VAT, though im not sure if the government includes the sugar tax apart of the VAT

Googling it and the government actually charges vat even in the sugar tax so on this item the sugar tax adds 30p. Most similar but cheap bottles like Barr with low sugar are £1, these will cost probably 50p more with sugar tax and extra vat etc. But still like you say it’s overpriced and we’re probably paying a good 50p for it, the fact it’s a limited one of run and it might be the last chance to get an irn bru like before it’s actually worth it. People are paying £5-£10 just for a can of old irn bru that’s out of date.

If so it should be £1.50 either way we need to get rid of the sugar tax and we especially shouldnt have to pay VAT on Tax..
Also youre confusing me like i said before VAT it would cost only 24p extra so why would there be 26p more if you add 24p to the sale price..

It would still be about £1.26 after 20% sales tax.. Because youre charging 24p more 20% of that 24p will go to the government so the VAT is actually a couple pence more lol
I don't think im confused i think youre calculating the VAT for a item costing £1.79 lol
Yes this item priced at £1.79 theyll be 30p going to the government (VAT) and 24tax goinv to sugar tax so there theyll make £1.29 but they could sell it at £1.24 instead of £1.79 and atill make aa much money as a regular irn bru

In short it will add 24p to their costs and 5p extra VAT for us

You could argue the extra 50p is just for the gimmick of the bottle and demand

Sugar tax is the main problem and is totally unfair, I’m fit and healthy and eat well I train and am a postman so fit. But yes I like sugar drinks and some junk food at times yet I pay these extra charges because of fat obese people.
Is it only in Scotland yet?
