You can get duty free on the way in at the airport......
Don't know many shops in the CBD.
Our French friend should be able to help as he works in that manor......

Didn't know whether to move this to the Kiwi Bar - but thought the Sheep Dip as good a place as any!

Hi Imz, might be best to change your tipple......my husband used to drink only malts,preferably ones from Islay, back in Scotland but finds them very expensive here. Best to get some duty free if possible. I believe you can order on line for it to be waiting at your final destination.
