Eurostat: Alcohol prices in Cyprus slightly above EU 28 average

The price of alcoholic drinks in Cyprus in 2018 stood slightly above the EU 28 average, according to figures released by Eurostat on Friday.

It said that in 2018, the price of alcoholic drinks across the European Union (EU) was more than twice as high in the most expensive Member State than in the cheapest one.

When price levels in countries are compared with the EU average price level index of 100, the results show that in 2018, the price of alcoholic drinks (spirits, wine and beer) was highest in Finland (with a price level index of 182), followed by Ireland (177) and Sweden (152).

In contrast, the price levels for alcoholic drinks in 2018 were lowest in Bulgaria and Romania (both with a price level index of 74) followed by Hungary (77).

Cyprus was slightly above the EU average at 103 and ranked the 11th most expensive in the bloc.
