Minimum Unit Pricing Calculator

In January 2022, Ireland will introduce Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) for alcohol. This means any retailer, bar, restaurant or hotel will be required to charge a minimum price for alcohol based on the grams of alcohol in the drink.

The rate which must be charged is 10c per gram of alcohol. One ml of alcohol is equal to approximately 0.79 grams and so calculating this required a little work.

This calculator will work it out for you! For example, if you have a 750ml (or 75cl) bottle of wine that is 12.5% strength. Enter 750 and 12.5 into the calculator below and it will give you the minimum price which must be charged for that bottle.
