Join the fight
to freeze
the super tax.

The spirits super tax is forcing the Australian spirits industry to do business with one hand tied behind its back. It’s impossible to plan for future growth and confidently invest in innovation and expansion. The only certainty is more tax.

If you care about the Australian spirits industry, say enough is enough.

Send a message to Canberra: it's time to freeze the spirits super tax.

THE SPIRITS TAX
IN NUMBERS.

$1.08 is the current tax rate 
for a standard drink.
20 is the number of tax increases 
over the last 10 years
70% How much Australia's spirit tax is higher than NZ's.
220% is the tax gap between a gin and tonic and a midi of beer.

A rate that's
rising rapidly

Every 6 months and counting...

That's 20 increases in the last decade.

While Canberra writes itself a cheque for a tax rise every six months, the local industry battles narrowing margins and a tax bill that far outweighs their wage and production costs. Simply put, it’s a tax that’s completely unsustainable.

With no end in sight, the only certainty is more tax.

A TAX THAT
HURTS ALL OF US.

A tax that hurts all of us

Distillers, suppliers and drinkers – 
everyone shares the load of the spirits super tax.

Spirit producers struggle to increase their prices twice a year in a competitive market.

With the industry’s growth potential limited by an unsustainable tax, the effects are felt far beyond the distillery: the farmers and producers who supply the ingredients, the businesses that package, market and distribute spirits – and ultimately, Aussie spirit drinkers.

THE FREEZE IS JUST
THE FIRST STEP.
