The Kingdom of Denmark, like any northern state, prefers everything that is of good quality: at home, and characters, and culinary recipes. Therefore, Danish drinks are famous among tourists for their thoroughness and high-quality performance, regardless of whether they contain only vitamins or even degrees..
The customs gives the go-ahead for the import into the Kingdom of Denmark no more than a liter of strong alcohol or two liters of wine if the traveler arrives from non-EU territories. For those who cross the borders of the kingdom from the European Union, customs rules are allowed to stock up on 10 liters of strong alcohol or 90 liters of table wine. This makes a special sense: evenings in Denmark are long and cool, and the prices for alcoholic products will definitely not seem cheap. Those who like to buy alcohol in Denmark as souvenirs at the border will receive a sales tax refund if the receipt and product are kept intact.
Denmark's national drink
The main alcoholic symbol of the kingdom is considered to be Gammel Dansk. This bitter tincture, the name of which translates as «old Danish», it is drunk even at breakfast, and is obtained by infusing a whole bouquet of three dozen herbs, spices and fruits on alcohol. Denmark's national drink has a strength of 38 degrees, and is usually served slightly warmed up.
For teetotalers and fans of a healthy lifestyle, drinks are prepared here based on healing and healthy berries: cranberries and blackberries, cloudberries and raspberries, currants and lingonberries. Fruit drinks and jelly, compotes and lemonades, they refresh after active sports and replenish the supply of vitamins during the short northern summer.
Hot milk with spices for breakfast and a large mug of strong coffee for dinner are especially revered in the homeland of the storyteller Andersen. The latter circumstance does not seem strange to any of the local residents, because an invigorating drink helps to while away a long northern evening and not doze off while watching your favorite TV show or during a conversation with a laconic neighbor..
