Licensing and Registration of Clubs (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2021

Section 27: Removal of exemption for angostura bitters

This section omits angostura bitters (a product of high alcohol content which is used to flavour a wide variety of drinks and food) from the list of products which are not included in the definition of intoxicating liquor in Article 2(2) of the Licensing Order (interpretation). The omission has the effect that angostura bitters will be categorised as intoxicating liquor and therefore may only be sold in licensed premises.
