THE PHENOMENON OF SPIRIT SMUGGLING
Since ancient times, it has been smuggled onto Estonian shores. The greatest carriage of spirits was initially opened in the 19th century, when official concessions for the sale of wine were issued to Baltic landowners. The true golden period of smuggling, however, began at the turn of the twentieth century, when newly independent Finland enacted a ban. Alcohol was delivered to Estonia and Finland from both the so-called mother liquor vessels in neutral waters. In the 1920s and early 1930s, the majority of vodka was shipped. The quantity of illicit booze reduced with the repeal of the Prohibition Act in 1932, but the business did not cease. Smuggled German vodka was still available.
