Glen's Vodka - the sums just don't add up!!!.
You get what you pay for
Just got a flyer through the door from the local Asian corner shop.
Glen's Vodka 70cl £9.99.
Sounds like a great deal eh!.
So.............. let's break it down.
Duty on spirits currently = £28.22 a litre of 100% spirit
Glen's Vodka is 37.5% spirit - so..... duty on this should be 37.5% of £28.22, which equals £10.58 per litre. Bottle is 70cl so - duty is 70% of £10.58 - which equals £7.41.
VAT is currently 20% and is charged on the retail price of the bottle - so the ex-vat price is a bottle retailing at £9.99 is £8.32 - which means the VAT portion is £1.67.
So..... duty on this bottle is £7.41. VAT is £1.67, so total taxes = £9.08
This leaves the princely sum of £0.91p to cover the cost of the VODKA - the bottle, the label, any packaging, delivery costs, and profit to the retailer.
Am I being cynical - but is it just me that smells something a wee bit fishy here?.

It's drinkable if mixed with coke etc but honestly unless you're an alcoholic pay the extra £3 and get a bottle of Smirnoff/Russian standard, they may not be the best in the world but they're miles ahead of this slop.

Is it genuine or fake?
Either way It's not pleasant It gets us drunk It's not cheap as chips Plays havoc with our insides Is it genuine or fake?? You tell me. If I was an expert and loaded I don't think I'd be drinking this cheap variety of a drink you can barely describe as vodka It should be neatly packaged for half the price as ''Cheap Alchohol''

Pure and simple this is the worst vodka out there. Never drink this! I would rather drink my own urine, or hot lava than a single drop of this, and that's me being kind!

Bought Glens Vodka £12 UK Market Labeled. What a disappointment.
It misses the kick that is distinct to Vodka. It's a sham and i
want my money back. I mean something got to be wrong if you can
finish nearly half of a large bottle of vodka in the same sitting;
THAT is not supposed to be possible if it is Vodka.
its like an imitation vodka, like they put water in the bottle and
make it smell alcoholic. SHAM

Recently bought two liter bottles from different supermarkets. First bottle tasted good as it usually does but the second bottle I opened tonight I can only describe as vile, totally undrinkable. Will be choosing another brand in the future if this problem is not sorted out!!!!!

Have bought and drunk many bottles of Glen's vodka and enjoyed. Last ones bought from Tesco were returned to store as tasted and smelled horrible. Will not purchase again till get report on the problem which Tesco are chasing up with the distillery.

recently I purchased a litre of glens vodka because glens is my preferred drink. The vodka tasted as though there was something wrong with it or something added to the extent that it was un drinkable. I don't think I will purchase another bottle ever even tho as I said this was my usual drink :( very unhappy.

i find it a great vodka to mix with other drinks,it has that easy to drink appeal and coming from scotland has the heritage of master distillers to keep it alive and kicking.It is differant to others,to me that is its appeal.
