I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that the revenue in the form of taxation that was generated by the sale of alcohol in 2014 is in respect of Alcohol Products Tax (Excise Duty) and VAT. It should be noted that the VAT receipts are estimated, as VAT returns do not require the yield from a particular sector or sub-sector of trade to be identified.
