As part of a series of inspection and control actions aimed at detecting infractions related to the storage and marketing of beverages subject to excise duty, several operators were inspected and detected, storing approximately 16 500 litres of liqueur wine and 600 litres of aguardente in unauthorized places and without customs control, thus escaping the tax obligations of declaring and paying the applicable taxes.

Three administrative infraction notices were issued for irregular consumption.

The value of the seized beverages amounts to 105,000 euros, and their illicit marketing would have caused a loss to the State of about 17,000 euros.
