    What percentage of alcohol can you sell to an under 18 year old

    For example if a box of chocolates, tiramisu or profiteroles for example had a certain amount of alcohol in what is the maximum alcohol a shop in the UK could sell to a minor?

    Thanks for that, so all the answers above you were wrong.

    You can't sell zero % alcohol to under 18's but you can sell Shandy to under 18's which does contain alcohol.... bonkers UK rules. I also read that its not against the law to give alcohol to children over the age of 5 in your own home.

    5 and up May consume alcohol at home with adult supervision.
    Under 14’s Can go into a pub with a children’s certificate, but must be with an adult and stay in the garden or family room.
    Under 16’s Can go into a restaurant where alcohol is served and at licensee’s discretion may consume (but not purchase) alcohol bought by a parent or guardian as long as it is with a meal.
    16-17 May purchase beer, port, cider or perry in an eating area on licensed premises (in Scotland this applies to wine too) as long as it is with a meal.
    Any age No person may buy or attempt to buy intoxicating liquor for consumption in a bar by a person under the age of 18. Maximum fine £1,000.

    good info, but it doesn't relate to my question. Let's say a profiterole has 1.2% alcohol, can a 4 year old buy it?

    Where are these profiteroles? Get in me belly!

    Heavy reading but here goes:

    Licensing Act 2003
    You are here:
    2003 c. 17 Part 9 InterpretationSection 191
    Meaning of “alcohol”

    (1)In this Act, “alcohol” means spirits, wine, beer, cider or any other fermented, distilled or spirituous liquor, but does not include—

    (b)perfume,
    (c)flavouring essences recognised by the Commissioners of Customs and Excise as not being intended for consumption as or with dutiable alcoholic liquor,
    (d)the aromatic flavouring essence commonly known as Angostura bitters,
    (e)alcohol which is, or is included in, a medicinal product, [F1or a veterinary medicinal product]
    (f)denatured alcohol,
    (g)methyl alcohol,
    (h)naphtha, or

    (2)In this section—
    “denatured alcohol” has the same meaning as in section 5 of the Finance Act 1995 (c. 4);

    “strength” is to be construed in accordance with section 2 of the Alcoholic Liquor Duties Act 1979.
