France's Ministry of Health is planning to considerably broaden the range of pre-mix alcoholic drinks on which duty is levied as part of a campaign to check alcohol consumption among young people.

The change in the scope of the duty, which is levied at €5.55/decilitre of pure alcohol, is being made within the framework of an amendment to a government public health bill.

New popular brands with young people such as Smirnoff Ice, Eristoff Ice or Boomerang will be liable to the duty as well as pre-mixed beers, such as tequila-flavoured Desperado and a range of strong alcohol drinks sold in bottles of less than 60 centilitres and fortified by sugar additives and
flavourings.
