curiosity kills the cat

The unverified reason Irn-Bru is not available in Germany is because the ingredients label and so on are only English, not in German. Usually this is remedied by sticking another label in whatever language it should be. No idea why it doesn't work out.

Apparently, this famous Scottish soda is available in Norway.

apparently the market in germany is too small for them :) in russia they translated everything (it is required by the state law) - http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2413/1616293181_1c5eb39daf.jpg?v=0

@Denis: yes, that is one possible explanation (but then, Norway's market is probably even smaller).

Glad you remembered it.

Where they sell it just depends on where they can do deals with local drinks companies to franchise it out. Also where it's legal (sometimes it's not in the US).
