The trade body referenced a YouGov poll of 1,693 British adult drinkers conducted in November 2012 to show that women will be hardest hit by the price changes.
The poll suggested 63% of women’s alcohol intake is wine and 22% is spirits. Just 8% of what they drink is beer.
Meanwhile 51% of the alcohol men drink is beer, while 33% is wine and 13% is spirits.
WSTA chief executive Miles Beale said: “We are concerned that women look set to be penalised by wine and spirit price increases across the board, simply because they make different choices about what to drink.”
