Glad I only drink K cider, £1.20 a can. Daughter's asked me to get her a bottle of Jagermeister in Tesco, as I'm going anyway, to take to her friends to pre-load before going to a party later. A tenner for the smallest, 35cl! Don't know how these spirit drinkers can afford it at those prices, unless they drink a cheaper store brand.

I notice in her text she hasn't said if she'll pay me back! rolleyes.gif Hmmmm.

In fairness, Jagermeister is a bit too sweet to really have more than a double shot at a time, so a tenner would last a while - it's not like gin where measures just SPOIL THE FUN

Yes they are expensive and so they should be. The stronger the alcohol the more it should cost surely?

It'd be a very slippery slope if they were as affordable as cider and the like~

How old are you? If you're old enough take ID. If not then they're right not to sell you it! tongue.gif

She tried to buy it herself at Tesco Extra and had ID but because she was with another girl, also 19, who had no ID they wouldn't sell her it. How stupid. rolleyes.gif She should have gone out, waited a while and gone back in alone and gone to another checkout as there are loads in there.

Back in my fresher's year Tesco value vodka (as it was known then) was under £7. Now it's about a tenner! Glad I went to Uni when I did laugh.gif

It's not stupid at all. Can't speak for the legislation in rUK as this is devolved, but up here if you sell alcohol to an underaged person you get prosecuted for selling a controlled substance to a minor, so have a criminal record, and get fined £5000. The store manager also gets fined and prosecuted personally. Get caught twice in a short time period and the store will lose their licence to sell alcohol.

It's just not worth the risk for the people working in the shops to give people benefit of the doubt. If one person in a group is underage, then it's a crime to sell alcohol to any member of that group.

I don't know how tough the law is in rUK but it's brutal up here so stores are seriously strict on ID checking and on forms of acceptable ID. I refused the sale of a 12 rated DVD to a university student once because they looked under 25 and didn't have ID that could prove their age that wasn't a student ID.

Acceptable ID in Scotland = Passport of internationally recognised nation (Kosovo and Turkish Cyprus would struggle here), any EU drivers licence, or a card with the PASS hologram.

When I was in Stirling I got served with my provisional license which I use for ID elsewhere laugh.gif They asked if I had ID, so I pulled it out and they said it was fine.

Also I don't have a passport either. I haven't been abroad so never needed to have one, if it was the onyl ID you could have obviously I would need one though!

A Provisional license is an EU Drivers License wink.gif No specification in law to have passed your test, you just need a license from an EU member state.

The reason being is that all EU drivers licenses, provisional and full, must carry the same information on them by EU law. It's because they are so standardised that they are accepted under Scottish law. #themoreyouknow

Haha yeah they are common sight amongst Uni students around here.

To sell alcohol here you have to undertake a 2 hour mandatory course as set by the government then get like monthly refreshers and resit tests like every 6 months. once you've done it a few times you tend to know it off by heart laugh.gif

Aldi's lowest is €8 for 70cl sad.gif

But seriously don't buy alcohol from Tesco if it's a discount, and even then you have to be wary.
