Mad rush for vodka in Poland
There is currently a mad rush to buy vodka in Poland. Factories are working around the clock and some packaging plants have been unable to keep up supplies. Wholesalers are buying as much as they can as are vodka drinkers. However this will all come to an end in the New Year as 15 percent excise duty is introduced.
A 15% increase in excise duty is likely to cause a ten percent fall in consumption. The finance ministry believes that it will raise an extra PLN780m (EUR185m) through this tax.
