When we were in London, we noticed UK booze was pricey, wine and liquor especially. Cider and beer was a bit more in line with our expectations. Then we visited Canada, Ottawa specifically.
OMFG. Look at these pics from the state (province?) liquor store (note the current exchange rate is about 1:1):
So I did some research. Canada is far from the worst. England ranks pricier (which we expected). Who’s the worst? Singapore! Want to drink cheap on vacation? Check out Guinea, Iran, or Kazakhstan. I’m a little surprised France ranks above the US, same with Italy.
But it wasn’t all bad …
