NTNE01Z01MA - V1 From 1 October alcohol cannot be sold for less than $1.30 per standard drink This will mean a price increase to select cheap wines, cask wine and fortified wines. The cost of beer and spirits will remain largely unchanged. This is a positive step to prevent and minimise alcohol-related harm for at-risk and dependent drinkers by increasing the cost of cheap, high-strength alcohol drinks. The minimum floor price is not a tax. The NT Government does not profit from the policy. The cost of every drink will not increase by $1.30. The minimum floor price is part of the NT Governments plans to tackle alcohol abuse and create a safer Territory.
