Smuggling is nothing new, Its existed for as long as trade has, So it should come as no surprise that beer, what with its high taxes is one of the most smuggled products that you can legally buy. This problem is so prolific that its estimated that the illegal beer that was seized while on route to this Britain could fill four swimming pools, Its also estimated that 10 percent of all beer sold in the UK comes from illegal sources.

The government are really clamping down on this smuggled beer, The amount they are seizing is only increasing, Why are they doing this? Is it to protect our health? No. this is about taxes pure and simple, This smuggled beer is not taxed so HRMC doesn’t get a cut and therefore the beer is illegal. Always make sure you buy your alcohol from reputable sources.
