Can I bring alcohol into Morocco?

We will be going to Marrakech oN Saturday and as we like to drink good quality wine would like to bring 2 or 3 bottles to keep in our suite for the odd drink (we've tried a few Moroccan wines in the UK and werent impressed.

Will we have to declare it at customs and pay import taxes?

I realise we may be able to buy high quality wine in a supermarket but would prefer to buy it in uk duty free.

Thanks

With respect you probably did not find quality Moroccan wines in the UK unless you deal with specialist providers. High quality wines (from various countries) are available in supermarkets here, and often cheaper than duty free. And if you are true aficionados of wines you will of course realise that the frequent transport of fine wines from place to place often results in a reduction in quality, especially being thrown about in a suitcase or hand luggage. Have a safe journey, a good festive season and enjoy les vins du Maroc - you may be pleasantly surprised!

Thanks for your reply. We've had wine in al fassia, Windsor (owned by the same family as alb fassia in MK) and a couple of Morrocan restaurants in London, typically priced at around £40 a bottle and they were all pretty lousy tbh.

We will probably end up buying local wines in restaurants but does anyone know about importing foreign alcohol into Morrocco.

Thanks

Hi,

You can bring alcohol into Morocco as per the regulations posted in the airport duty free shops but I'd agree with the previously posted suggestion that you may be surprised at the quality and price of Moroccan wines when you are actually here.
