About The Lowered Alcohol Tax In Denmark.

Mon Sep 29, 2003 11:54 pm

Denmark will lower their alcohol tax with 45% or something this wednesday. Now, what i'm thinking is what does this mean in reality? The cheapest 75cl bottle of Vodka you can get here in sweden goes for about 22EUR. How much does a similar bottle cost in Denmark right now and what will it cost after this wednesday? I'll be doing a day trip to denmark on friday so i'm a bit curious what to expect.

Yepp. Horrible isn't it? Sweden is going to have to lower their alchohol tax soon enough though, there's no way in hell that the prices here can compete with the ones just a 20min boat trip to denmark. Half of all the alcohol consumed in the lower regions of sweden is bought in denmark right now.

The ones who lose out most are the smugglers and makers of moon-shine, I brought 64liter of Staropramen cost about 1,1€uro in Estonia and 4,4€uro in Sweden.

Huh, haven't got the slightest idea. For 50+ years living in Denmark I have never bought one bottle in Denmark except in the CPH tax free shop. When going on business trips to Stockholm or Oslo my foreign colleagues always send me an email with a tax free shopping list.

What will happen here in Denmark is that less Danes will "import" from Germany. The German shops just south of the border are furious.

The ferries to Sweden are already filled with Swedish smugglers, so no change there. But maybe the new bridge to Sweden will see increased traffic?

Also the ordinary fares on ferries between Denmark and Norway will go up. The onboard tax free shops will have to match lower Danish shop prices meaning less onboard tax free shop profit. So for me it means more money out of pocket.

Anyway, remember: All fun without alcohol is artificial.
Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs
