Iceland’s State Alcohol and Tobacco Company is Vínbudin. It controls the retail sale of alcohol.
The liquor store Vínbudin in Hofn sells light wine, spirits, beer, liqueurs, and other beverages, as well as advice on choosing the best wine for your occasion.
One of the company’s responsibilities is to ensure that customers are over the age of 20, and the liquor store strictly enforces identification checks.
Due to high taxes, alcohol is expensive in Iceland, but it can be purchased tax-free at the airport’s Tax Free Store, which is located next to the baggage claim area.
