  • The Swedish government says it's working on a bill to allow so-called ”farm sales” of alcohol, where small-scale producers will be permitted to sell directly to customers.

  • The sale of alcohol is tightly controlled in Sweden. The state-owned alcohol monopoly Systembolaget is the only store able to sell beverages with an alcohol content above 3.5 per cent.

  • Public Health Minister Jakob Forssmed of the Christian Democrats says the rural tourism industry has long called for these changes.
