Tariff turnaround boosts gin jobs
While the mainstream media is determined to spread doom and despondency regarding the economy, here at GINblogger we thought it worth reporting a bit of good news on jobs and exports that really should lift the spirits. And of course when we say spirits we mean gin!
Hidden in the middle pages of the paper and totally ignored by the Beeb, Trade Minister Liz Truss has persuaded the US Government to reel back on its threat to impose punitive import tariffs on British gins, as the result of its ongoing dispute with the EU over subsidies being given to Europe’s Airbus.
Donald Trump of course has built his presidency on an “America First” policy when it comes to employment, and his protectionism for firms like Boeing prejudiced sales there of popular brands such as Gordons, Plymouth and Beefeater. Craft distillations might even have been proportionately worse affected.
Government sources suggested job losses here could have been counted in the thousands so this weekend we’ll be raising a glass to Liz Truss, as well as the UK’s gin makers.
