Three of the UK’s biggest supermarkets have been found to sell beer at such low prices that it is cheaper than some mineral water.
According to Channel 4:
A Dispatches investigation into cheap alcohol found the cheapest lager was being sold by Tesco, which is selling multipacks of Fosters, Carlsberg and Carling for the equivalent of 69p a pint. Tesco's 750ml bottle of Perrier was on sale at 73p a pint – as of noon 23rd June.
Asda and Tesco have been selling 2 litre bottles of their own-label cider at £2.25, meaning a man could drink more than their recommended daily limit of alcohol for £1 and a woman for 75p.
The Cost of Cheap Alcohol: Channel 4 Dispatches, will be shown at 8pm tonight.
