The capital’s reintroduction of new alcohol sale rules
Warsaw councillors have adopted amendments in the sale of alcohol, maintaining the distance of 50 metres from an alcohol sale outlet to a protected facility. This is the distance to the nearest entrance of a facility, only in the case of military facilities – to their boundaries. Crèches, children’s clubs, schools for adults, post-secondary schools, psychological and pedagogical counselling centres, monasteries, and nursery schools are excluded from the list of protected facilities. The number of outlets selling beverages with alcohol content above 5.5% (except beer) has been reduced to 2,900. The limit of outlets with on-the-spot consumption, i.e. 2,440, has been maintained.

The strong position of Poland on the whisky market
As reported by Scotch Whisky Association, Poland is 13th worldwide in terms of whisky consumption, and 18th in terms of value. This is due to the fact that the imports of whisky from Scotland to Poland ­increased by more than 34% in value, and by 20% compared to the year 2014. Blends continue to be the largest category of sales, both in Poland and worldwide, though the sale of single malt whisky is steadily growing.

Sale of beer in small-format stores
Beer generates approximately 14% of turnover at small-format stores up 300 m2, what puts it in the second place (behind cigarettes) in the ranking of the most important product categories. The purchase of beer is the main, and often the only reason of a visit to a small-format store – every fourth customer puts a bottle or a can with the logo of one of the breweries to the cart, and almost every other receipt with beer has no other products.
Unfortunately, "the decontaminant" makes a sensation
Marketing of illegal alcohol not only causes enormous losses to the state budget and legitimate producers, but also brings huge income for organized crime. Illegal vodka production and sale is a billion-dollar deal. Each liquor gang with only one illicit bottling line, is able to earn up to 5 million PLN a month. In fact, the vodka mafia operates hundreds of such bottling plants! It is estimated that the state treasury loses close to 1.5 billion PLN per year on the contaminated alcohol! And the industry itself loses more than 300 million PLN per year on counterfeit branded spirits.
