Good job Norway is not in the EU

It would be the top of the table.

The Norwegian customs authority have kindly translated into English some worked examples for personal import of alcoholic drinks (i.e. not carried with you as part of a duty-free allowance)

Assuming (roughly) 10 Norwegian Kroner (NOK) to a Pound Sterling

Import a 24-pack of beer (£30 freight) - initial price of beer: £12 - extra taxes: roughly £95

Import a case of wine (12 bottles) (£30 freight) - initial price of wine: £60 - extra taxes: roughly £190

Import 12 bottles of spirits (£30 freight) - initial price of spirits: £160 - extra taxes: roughly £560

Oddly enough, there is a fair amount of smuggling.
