DENMARK: More Danes buy booze abroad
Over a third of Danes are buying their alcohol abroad, according to recent figures. The Danish wine and spirits importers' organisation VSOD said yesterday (5 October) that cross-border liquor purchases account for 17% of the country's cross-border trade, up from 13% last year.
The organisation called for a further reduction of alcohol tax in Denmark to slow the growth of cross-border liquor purchases. The tax was lowered in October last year.
VSOD also said that it believed another tax reduction would not result in a marked rise in the consumption of alcohol drinks in Denmark.
Danish market research institute GfK Danmark A/S reported that around 30% of Danes purchased alcohol products in Germany in August this year. Alcohol taxes are currently about 35% lower in Germany compared to Denmark.
