Hi mlind, branded spirits are dirt cheap in resort. Smirnoff vodka is 10 euros (ish) & other vodka 5 euros-both for a litre! Same for rum. You'll find many places with offers on various drinks. Pays to browse around. We find the Spar (Las Palmeras lower floor) very good for both food & drinks. Also The Link (main street) & sister outlet-Kings (calle La Red by Penny lane) very cheap too, There are many s'markets scattered around & you're not far from one! So although prices in 'duty free' are ok-wait til you get to resort-we always do & are always surprised at the cheapness of ale/spirits. Hope this helps.

As Scarletrugby has said - Don't buy duty free - cheaper when you arrive

Bear in mind that there are strict limits on what you can take in and out of the Canary Islands. Those old pre-EU limits that we once had everywhere apply today here as the Canaries are not part of the fiscal EU and even the Spanish mainlanders have to abide by these rules.

So, for travelling you need to find the customs tables for going outside the EU. Spot-checks ARE carried out so although you may be lucky, you may lose the lot AND be fined. This applies not just to spirits but to all alcohol, tobacco, perfume, etc.
