They’re not big boozers

It’s perhaps a tad surprising that the Argentines don’t seem to drink a lot of alcohol, particularly as compared with the Spanish.

We’ve been a bit goggle-eyed lately wandering around the supermarket to find.

1L of beer for AU$0.96

1L of gin or vodka for AU$3.41

Really good red wine for AU$4.00 / bottle.

Obviously AU dollar prices are largely irrelevant, but I’ve no doubt that on a purchasing power parity basis, the stuff is still rather a lot cheaper here.

I’ve never visited another country and not though “why is booze so expensive in Australia?”. Mind you, I’ve never been to Scandinavia. I hear they’re doing even better/worse.
