Imagine a sector in recession ravaged Ireland that still employs 92,000 people. Imagine that these are jobs in parishes across the country, in places where jobs are often thin on the ground. Imagine a sector that is steeped in Irish craft and artisanship but also home to innovation.
Imagine a sector that attracts visitors and consumers from across the world and is central to our hospitality offering. Now imagine hitting that sector with punitive taxes and undermining its future.
That sector is the Irish drinks industry and that is the reality we currently face.
