Never been illegal has it ?

No It is not illegal.
I brought some back from Prague a few years ago.
Mine was 80%, and some canabis Vodka too, full with hemp seeds!
Not sure if it is legal to sell it tho...that is a bit different.

i just bought some back from prague the other week and no troubles getting it back. that was 80% aswell. no cannabis seeds in though

Banned

Legal.
You can buy Polish Pure Spirit here and that's rated at 100%
Nope, I'm wrong there.
sorry

britain never banned it according to wiki, just never been as popular here as on th continent

Unfortunatley it tastes like tish. Try drinking two of your favorite drink instead:thumbsup:

Banned

It's not illegal, just a limit to what you can have in clubs etc as it's so strong Mine ran out and can't get anymore?

Only if it's got wormwood in it and then you'll go blind and mad (in that order) Have fun

Lol cheers everyone.
Ye think it was illegal in UK last year but they've legalised it now and weakened it (42.5%). Saw it in Chester Tesco last night you will all be repped
