The National Supervisory Authority
for Welfare and Health (VALVIRA) published its fresh estimates on
traveller imports on Thursday. The figures are based on responses to a
questionnaire from more than 9,000 people.
Two-thirds of the alcoholic beverages brought in by Finns were bought in Estonia, or from on-board sales on passenger ships. The increase was most significant in wines, strong cider, and pre-mixed long drinks.
There was only a slight increase in personal imports of beer, and imports of strong spirits were unchanged.
