Private imports of alcohol into Sweden this year have fallen, according to recent figures. A survey by the Centre for Social Research on Alcohol and Drugs (SoRAD) at the University of Stockholm has shown that alcohol imports by private individuals into Sweden in 2005 to August dropped by 12% year-on-year to 11.8m litres of pure alcohol.

While private imports of beer decreased by 18% to 50.2m litres, hard liquor imports were down by 14% to 13.6m litres, with wine imports down by 2% to 29.9m litres.

In the month of August alone, alcohol imports by private individuals fell by 4% year-on-year to 1.85m litres of pure alcohol, the centre added.

SoRAD also said that the average annual per capita consumption of pure alcohol per person for the 12 months to August was down to 10.1 litres for each citizen over 15 years old.
