Jeans, American whiskey, bourbon and motorcycles are going to be a lot more expensive from next month as the tariff war between the EU and the US heats up.

The tariff on American made jeans like Levis will increase from 12% to a massive 40%.

According to RTÉ, the price of bourbon, American whiskey and orange juice will increase by 25%.

This could have a knock-on effect on the price of 'Old Fashioned' cocktails.

As reported by, this comes on the back of the US government's move to increase tariffs on EU steel and aluminium last month.

Cheers guys, hitting us where it hurts.
