The responses to this consultation are currently being reviewed. Details of the outcome will be published here in due course.
We are seeking views on the descriptions used on the labelling of low alcohol drinks.
We are consulting on whether:
- the existing regulations should be replaced with guidance
- the alcohol by volume (ABV) content of low alcohol drinks should be lower than 1.2%
- the current descriptors 'alcohol free', 'non-alcoholic' and 'dealcoholised' should be changed
- an additional descriptor for alcoholic drinks which are higher than 1.2% ABV should be introduced.
