Test case in European Court of Justice
British customs were very aggressive in limiting booze imports by consumers and arbitrarily confiscated amounts beyond a few cases it seems. In a challenge in the ECJ to this,an individual won the right to import large quantities,a van load full. AFAIK,the principle is that you should be able to buy as much as you can consume over a long period.I thought that max allowance was done away with, no?
(Just have it in the back of my head that there was an EU ruling which went against it but not sure)
