Blow for wine drinkers after dry January

Duty on a bottle of wine has risen on the day after the popular Dry January challenge ended, potentially pushing up the cost of a bottle by 8p.

There is better news for beer drinkers, as duty has been frozen, as it has for cider and scotch whisky.

The announcement on duties was made by Chancellor Philip Hammond in the Budget in October, but comes into force now.
