    I think you should lock at the German online store market Mark. The prices are general lower than in GB and the shipping fee inside EU is very reasonable. Most/many of them wonít ship to Sweden, but I donít think you will have that problem in GB.

    Sounds great I'll have a look and see what i can find, my german is a little rusty though! Have you got any links or suggestions to good sites?

    Edit to say that i've had a look and some prices do seem cheaper, but I will have to pay 19% VAT in germany and then likely have to pay 17.5% VAT if customs here decide I should which is almost a dead cert!

    The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.

    19 % vat are included in the prices and why in heavens name should you pay GB vat? I never pay Swedish vat when ordering from Germany. Here are a few links.

    Thanks for the links, I'll check them out, I have in the past had to pay customs charges on purchases from over seas so I would be suprosed if I didn't again, I love our Country, tax the workers then give it all out to the workshy layabouts to spend on luxuries I can't afford due to the taxes!

    I had a few glasses of BT last night, its not a bad drop at all, seemed to improve when i dropped in a cube of ice though, helped bring out a bit more flavour, can't say I was overwhelmed by it though.
