The Chancellor also announced that he would be cutting the “irrational” 28 percent duty on sparkling wines to the same duty as still wines of the equivalent strength as they are “no longer the preserve of wealthy elites.”

He added that “because growing conditions in the UK typically favour lower strength and sparkling wines, this means English and Welsh wines, compared with stronger imported wines, will now pay less.”

He also cut the higher rate of duty on fruit ciders, which “can pay two or three times as much duty as cider that is made with apples or pears.”

Mr Sunak pledged to cut duty on draught beer and cider to “directly support the home of British community life for centuries: our pubs.”
