My daughter is getting married in Croatia in August and I will be driving down in the van for the wedding (then hanging around for a few months).

I've just been asked to take booze with me for the wedding, the suggestion being to buy in France or perhaps Luxembourg? My route will be France, Luxembourg, Swizerland, Italy.
I'm wondering what the prices are actually like in Croation Supermarkets for wine, beer and Spirits?

I'll be returning from Spain/Portugal at the end of June so could also bring booze from there? I recall Brandy and Vodka being particularly cheap there?

TIA Steve

Yeah thanks, been there and looked at that, it doesn't really answer my question.

Whatever you do don't spill any Silvovitz in the van !

It will dissolve the floor and the chassis.

It's even worse if its passed through your kidneys to your bladder and then into the van loo, Slivovitz is a fabulous plum brandy, but about 10,000% proof. Having spent a great deal of time in Eastern Europe, I have found that many of the local wines are quite passable, particularly Hungarian and Romanian, so maybe take a small reserve stock of French / Spanish (cheaper) or Portuguese (even cheaper) and then sample the local poison (which will be even cheaper) and see how you go. And for a couple of quid a bottle, there some great fizzies in Spain & Portugal (and even France too, but you must be careful and try them all first !!)

Furthest i drive down from Scotland is Hull so never near Calais. For the amount we buy it not worth the extra fuel and driving time making the detour from Zeebrugge. This works well as we pass through anyway. There is another called Real Tobacco but slightly more expensive. Im sure they have shops in France as well.

Shop info Real Tobacco (http://www.realtobacco.be/en/real-tobacco/shop-info)

What made up start looking for C&C type warehouses there is a lack of Gin sellers in Germany and Holland. We did find a off licence in Helmond Holland but it was expensive in comparison.
If anyone is down the Black Forrest area and want a Gin look for shops called Penny. They are like Aldi but they sell a London Gin what i am told is quite nice. Cant stand the stuff myself. I also quick smoking so about 450 gets the wife Tobacco for the year. Great saving on UK shop prices.
