    So you should, however, bear in mind that bringing alcohol into Iran is strictly forbidden, so travelers cannot take advantage of their duty-free alcohol allowance when coming to Iran. Also If you bring chocolates from abroad, which are always appreciated, make sure they do not contain alcohol.

    Alcohol and Alcoholic Drinks Market in Iran

    In its latest report on alcoholic drinks market in Iran the Euromonitor  has reported that the alcoholic drinks market in Iran comprises only non-alcoholic beer as Islamic law forbids the consumption, manufacture and trade of alcohol in any form among Muslims. Such regulations have created very strong demand for non-alcoholic beer.

    Anti-smuggling initiatives from the Iranian government, coupled with health awareness campaigns about the consumption of cola carbonates and campaigns encouraging the drinking of non-alcoholic beer, further boosted demand in 2014. Euromonitor

    People in Iran tend to drink tea, Sharbat (a cool, sweet drink known as the world’s first soft drink) or doogh (a savoury yogurt drink).

    Alcohol free beer is also available

    However, despite the religious and legal prohibition of alcohol, non-Muslim Iranians (e.g. Armenian Christians) are allowed to brew and consume alcohol in private.

    Some Iranian Muslims also drink in the privacy of their own homes, so if you are offered an alcoholic drink, you can accept it, since your host also drinks.

    Pork is not available. When it comes to meat most Iranians tend to eat chicken, beef or lamb, all of which are widely available.
