“We are already seeing prices [from producers] go up, and it is guaranteed that it will be going up by around 7%,” she argued.

However, the upside is that home-grown products that won’t incur this kind of increase are well-positioned to benefit hugely from the Brex-IN effect – both within the UK and at export. [Although Davies adds an important caveat that this largely relies on producers being savvy enough to maximize their advantage and not mirror the increased prices of their European counter-parts]

“There are lots of quality products – and they are going after certain styles and making them their own,” she said, pointing to Tarquin’s Cornish Pastis, Sacred’s vermouths, The Somerset Cider Brandy Company, Dapper’s English Grappa, Capreolus’s eau-de-vie in and the well-documented rise and rise of English Sparkling wine.

“All these people are doing this with confidence and it will be very interesting [to see it develop],” she said.
