The UK is working to ban stores from selling liquor for cost and sets a minimum price as a measure to stop people from binge drinking:

"Ministers will announce measures to stop retailers offering customers drinks for less than the tax they pay for it as the first step in a crackdown on binge drinking.

However, stores and landlords will not have to take into account the cost of producing the drinks when setting a price meaning they can still sell the drinks at a loss in order to entice customers to buy more.
