UKMost liquor exports and imports between the UK and US have been tax-free for 22 years. Brexit might send that into a tailspin.

“Leaving the EU would be a leap in the dark for our great British food and drink industry and could lead to years of negotiations on new trade deals – with no guarantees at the end,” said UK environment and food secretary Liz Truss during a visit to the Glenkinchie Distillery in Scotland (last) Monday.

On the positive side, you’ve got about two years to sip tax free. But, you may want to start stockpiling that Scotch whiskey just to cover your arse.
