So the gin we get is 37% proof from memory which is around £10.63 duty (unless there is VST on top of that?).

Add on the cost of the purchase at around a fiver and that's £15.63.

A bottle of Aldi gin is around £15 so unless we are talking Gordons at around 18-20 quid, its not worth doing really.


We can bring 4 litres of gin each back so 8 will do. Plus no doubt there will be one open and on the go as well

Don’t argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. —Greg King

Makes you wonder G.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
