Stop Hospitality Taxes

Interesting stuff you can fall into when you start digging. 40% or less of a spirit sale goes to the distiller... of which they pay for their materials, time, labor, blood, sweat and well... hopefully not tears - or sweat and blood for that matter... but you get the point. I'm not so sure that scotch and other imports would have the same ratio of taxation per sale, but this would surely show why some of my favorites such as Lagavoulin and Oban have increased in price so much over the last six to seven years.
