Influence of Brexit on the change in the price of whiskey

If such problems as the unity of the EU, against the decision of the British to withdraw from it, the layman cares a little, then his own pocket to care a lot more. According to some media rumor that the change rate of the pound sterling (he of Friday, June 24, fell to its lowest value against the dollar over the last 30 years [$1.35 per pound]) will be reflected, for example, the cost of this popular product from the UK, like whiskey. However, as reported “MK” the representative of one of the distribution companies, while signals of this no.

“I do not remember that we were a payment in pounds, told the newspaper an employee of a company involved in distributing the popular Scottish brand of whiskey. Often the payment is in dollars, sometimes in euros — purchases don’t always go directly from the UK. Yet no notification of a change of prices we have not received”.

It is worth noting that it’s not only in British currency – as already repeatedly wrote “MK” post-EU Britain will have to reshape their relationships – of course, and trade with international partners.

For example, us President Barack Obama has warned London about possible problems in a question of a trade agreement with the United States.

Anyway, it is obvious that the pricing of products exported from non-EU UK will depend on many factors and not only from changes in the exchange rate of the national currency.
