You know you’re in Denmark when… You have to be 18 years old to buy ciggies. But you can buy alcohol at the tender age of 16!
Yep, in Denmark, ‘still-at-school-16-year-olds’ can go into a supermarket or kiosk (newsagent) and legally buy alcohol. Providing it’s less than 16.5% proof. Which would be most wines, beer and alcopops…
But – hic – you want to enjoy a cognac with your cigar? Sorry – you’re going to have to wait until the grand old age of 18!
Skål! Med sodavand! (Cheers! With a soda!)
