This is related to this question, but applied within European Union.
According to this source, EU does not impose nutritional facts or ingredient list display for alcoholic beverage:
Alcoholic beverages greater than 1.2%ABV are exempt from ingredient list and nutrition declaration requirements (Art. 16, Res. 2015/2543RSP)
This is rather strange since EU is rather strict about nutrition labeling:
The new regulation makes nutrition labelling mandatory, and instructs food manufacturers to provide information on the energy value and 6 nutrients; fat, saturates, carbohydrate, sugars, protein and salt (..)
I am wondering what makes alcohol beverages so special that they are not treated as "normal" beverage (food) which must provide nutritional facts.
Question: Why are alcohol beverages generally excepted from displaying nutritional facts/ingredient list within EU?
