Wine and Spirits Industry reacts to Brexit vote.


Following the vote to leave the European Union the Wine and Spirit Trade Association vows to work to preserve our access to the Single Market and ensure the industry has a powerful voice in the international market place.


Chief Executive of the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, Miles Beale, said:

"The British public have voted to leave the European Union opening a new chapter in our history. While our members felt that the wine and spirit industry was stronger in the EU, we will work to assist government in preserving our access to the Single Market, supporting British drinks exports and agreeing the best possible international free trade agreements.

The WSTA will do everything it can to ensure that the UK’s wine and spirit industry has a powerful voice with a view to promoting the great British drinks industry’s leading position and fulfilling its huge potential in an increasingly competitive international market place.”
