Brunei is a dry country, but non-Muslim visitors over 17 years are allowed alcohol for their own consumption. Brunei has the highest duty free allowance of any country in the world.

Regulations permit two litres of alcohol (spirit or wine) and 12 cans of beer to be imported up to twice a day. This can either be brought into the country upon arrival or purchased at any border. The nearest border is 20 minutes from the hotel by car, a visit to which is an event in itself and not to be missed. A cosmopolitan atmosphere prevails, with Malay and Chinese food on offer to tables of chatting visitors and locals as they wait for their duty free orders to be prepared. Fun and festive!

Almost any brand of beer and spirits is available. The wines, including sparkling varieties are very good, and come mostly from Australian and Italian vineyards.

French Champagne and expensive French wines are not easily obtained at the borders and are therefore the brands worth bringing from Europe, if so desired.

Guests wine may be served to them at the hotel restaurants (except the Lobby Lounge and Atrium Cafe and at the Country Club and despite being a 5 star deluxe hotel, The Empire does not charge corkage.

For those who enjoy a drink, this provides for a very reasonably priced holiday; here the bar bill will definitely not exceed the cost of accommodation, as so often can be the case.

Alcohol purchases for groups may be organised in advance of arrival.

Halal Respecting the Muslim religion and culture, all food used at The Empire Hotel and Country Club is halal. Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful and permitted and Muslims around the world only consume food made from halal ingredients.

Foods which are not halal include pork and its by-products, animals not slaughtered according to the Halal procedures, alcohol and intoxicants, carnivorous animals, birds of prey and land animals without external ears, blood and blood by-products.

Using halal food and products does not affect the quality of taste or flavor of individual dishes.
