There are laws around the pricing of alcohol where it can't be sold under a certain £/ml based on ABV (can't remember the exact formula), if that is the case, when using your discount it will reduce the price to the cheapest possible amount that it can be legally sold for.

Alcohol needs to be no cheaper than 50p per unit of alcohol in England. An average 75cl bottle of wine at 13% ABV would be 10 units of alcohol so the cheapest it could be sold would be £5.00

If it's 11% ABV then it'd only be 8.6 units It could be £4.30

You can work out how many units there are in any drink by multiplying the total volume of a drink (in ml (1cl = 10ml)) by its ABV (measured as a percentage) and dividing the result by 1,000. For example, to work out the number of units in a pint (568ml) of strong lager (ABV 5.2%):

5.2 (%) x 568 (ml) ÷ 1,000 = 2.95 units.

2.95 x 50p = £1.48

There is a list of excluded products on the comms help page. If you can't find it you can ask a manager to print the list for you.
