Tesco price rise a Scotch mist?

Published 12/04/2012

Before the Budget, I bought a one-litre bottle of own-brand Scotch whisky at Tesco.

The label stated that a 25ml measure contains one unit of alcohol.

So a one-litre bottle would contain 40 units.

The bottle cost £16.10, making a fraction over 40p per unit.

Today, I bought a litre of similar Scotch at £17.

Did Tesco use the Budget as an excuse for raising the price to 42.5p a unit? Or are they just bad at sums?
