Another UK store loses license over fake Yellow Tail wine

A convenience store in Kings Norton, Birmingham has become the latest to lose its liquor license for stocking counterfeit Yellow Tail wine.

Trading Standards officers discovered 12 counterfeit bottles of wine at B&G Wines – trading as Max Convenience Store – during an inspection. It is suspected that the bottles were the remnants of a larger quantity of wine that had been sold to the public.

Shops selling counterfeit Yellow Tail wine have been discovered across the UK, and last year a supermarket in Sutton Coldfield had its license revoked, once again after Trading Standards discovered fake wine at the premises. The KVK Supermarket/Nisa Local store was found to have 41 counterfeit bottles in its stocks.

Previous licensing sub-committee hearings have heard Birmingham has a "huge problem" of fake Yellow Tail wine which police have said is likely to be spread by organised crime gangs, according to a BirminghamLive report.
