Cheap alcohol. Andorra: 4.5% VAT with no excises

Alcohol: cheap and expensive. Andorra: 4.5% VAT with no excises

(prices updated 01.01.2020)

Andorra is not part of the European Union, therefore, the country’s trade policy is not affected by the strict European regulations of the alcohol market. In addition, Andorra today has the lowest VAT rate in Europe, which is fixed for all types of goods (including alcohol) at 4.5%. Andorra has also no excise on alcohol trade, which is actively practiced by the pan-European taxation on alcohol policy.

Shops in Andorra sell all kinds of alcohol, including exquisite “museum” types of cognac and wines at low prices (interesting for collectors), as well as cheap alcohol for every day consumption.

________________

Prices for beer in Andorran supermarkets start from 5.29 euros for a package of 12 bottles Heineken Lager (0.25 liters, glass) when purchasing one package. In case of buying, for example, 3 packages of beer, the price starts from 3.53 euros per package.

________________

Andorra produces it’s own alcohol too – in the country there are 4 wine brands that produce wine from varieties of grapes grown in higher altitudes. The taste of Andorran wines is very different from the neighboring French and Spanish plain wines. Wines from European grapes growing in the mountains above 1,000m are a special category. All 4 Andorran wine brands, which are sold in Andorra  from € 30 per bottle in shops, are represented in most of the world markets: in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, and Australia. Look here for details 

_________________

Being a country historically and politically connected with France and Spain the Principality honors its customs and traditions. Therefore, Andorra annually welcomes a huge number of tourists during the holidays and hosts events related to wine tastings, during which both Spanish and French products can be sampled.

Every last Thursday of November at midnight, a celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau is widely celebrated.

At the end of November in Andorra, an annual conference of winemakers takes place, where wine producers from Europe and other countries of the world come and have the opportunity to taste the best wine brands.
