Jagermeister and Courvoisier are among the latest EU brands to be axed by JD Wetherspoon as it continues its pre-Brexit cull of EU products.

The company, which reports its full-year results on Friday, is to bolster its range of drinks from UK and non-EU producers from the end of this month.

As well as Courvoisier, the group will also Hennessy Fine de Cognac from September 26.

They will be replaced with E&J Brandy (the number two selling brandy in the USA), Black Bottle (the number one selling brandy in Australia) and Strika, a herbal liqueur produced in England.

E&J Brandy and Strika will be available in all Wetherspoon pubs from September 26, while Black Bottle will be available from the start of November.

Wetherspoon’s has already replaced Champagne with sparkling wines from the UK and Australia in its pubs as well as German wheat beers with those from the UK.

Founder and chairman, Tim Martin, said: “ The three new products will be offered at a lower price than those they are replacing.

“This is a significant move by us and highlights our commitment to offering an excellent range of UK and world products, with the emphasis on quality and value for the two million customers who visit our pubs each week.

“In blind tastings conducted by Wetherspoon, the new products were more popular than those they are replacing.

“We will continue to review all products over the next 24 months, with the object of making the business more competitive and offering the best choice and value for customers.

“Many commentators talk of a “cliff-edge” if the UK “crashes out” of the EU without a deal.

“In reality, there is no cliff-edge, only sunlit uplands beyond the EU’s protectionist system of quotas and tariffs.

“All EU products have UK or non-EU replacements, often at equal or better quality and price.

“It’s important to remember that 93% of the world is outside the EU.”
