Graham's has recently introduced its 1994 LBV port to the UK. The quality is expected to be high as the year was declared as a vintage by the leading port houses. The company is not offering a 1993 LBV because of the poor harvest caused by heavy rains. The first Polish beer to get a national listing with a major multiple is EB Specjal Pils which is going on sale in Tesco. The brand is Poland's bestselling beer. It will be available in 330ml bottles at £1.09. The Bordeaux producers have reported a year characterised by rising demand and dwindling stocks. Increasing prices caused some concern but they averaged out at between 10% and 20%. The region is also reporting another good vintage for 1998. Charles Wells is introducing new TV advertising for its Eagle Bitter. This features the brand's hero in the East Anglian Downhill Skiing Championships, which continues the theme of the first ad about the East Anglian Mountain Rescue Team. The brand will be supported by consumer and retailer incentives. The World Trading Organisation (WTO) has ruled that South Korea's tax system discriminates against imported spirits. The Scotch whisky industry will now be increasing the pressure on the country to cut its duty rates. These are three times higher for imports than for the native spirit Soju. The UK is the official guest nation at this year's Salon des Vins de Loire, the key wine show in the Loire valley. This takes place in Angers in the first week of February. Despite the hype and overpricing surrounding Burgundian wines Bibendum believes they can still be value for money. This week it launched its Burgundy offer for 1997 en primeur wines. The offer closes at the end of March. The success of last year's Kick for £1 million on Tetley's Bitter has prompted Carlsberg-Tetley to repeat the exercise. When it was run the promotion increased sales of the beer by 330%. It gives consumers the chance to kick between the posts at Twickenham at the Tetley's Bitter Cup Final in May. This is part of the brand's sponsorship of English rugby. {{DRINKS }}
