Not that it’s really correct to calculate it this way, but 7% of 54% ABV rum works out at just under 4% alcohol. That’s similar to some lagers.

So, yes, this can make someone drunk if they have enough of it.

I nipped in to Sainsburys at lunch time today to grab a bottle of wine for the weekend and I was offended that I wasn't age checked! I must be due a botox top up

Yes, some beers & ciders do have a small amount of alcohol.
We don’t buy those; we buy the zero alcohol free beers & ciders; we’ve checked the labelling to make sure!

Below 0.5% alcohol by volume can be legally bought by under 18s...

My son (17) and his girlfriend (19) were in the Coop the other day. She tried to buy some red bull, there was a 2 for 1 offer on, so 2 cans. They asked her for ID, which she provided, they then refused to sell it to her because they believed she was buying it for my son (who didn't have ID).

I was waiting in the car and had to go and buy her red bull for her.

assuming they don't throw up first !

Under the Licensing Act 2003, any drink that contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) is considered a negligible amount of alcohol and is therefore not classed as an alcoholic beverage, so legally under 18s can purchase non alcoholic beers in hospitality settings but not in supermarket as the sale of non-alcoholic beer to minors in stores are prohibited. This is because these establishments are considered as off-licenced premises, where the sale of alcohol to under 18 is prohibited by law.

You learn something new (that doesn't necessarily make any sense at all) every day!

edit: It appears the licensing act only applies to beverages above 0.5% alcohol by volume, so this is a choice of the retailer rather than the law.

The Licensing Act 2003, Section 191:

191 Meaning of “alcohol”

(1) In this Act, “alcohol” means spirits, wine, beer, cider, or any other fermented, distilled, or spirituous liquor [F1(in any state)], but does not include—

(a) alcohol which is of a strength not exceeding 0.5%
at the time of the sale or supply in question


"Off" license is just another type of alcohol license which means for consumption "off" the premises.

There are different rules depending on the premises for example 16 and 17 years olds can drink beer/wine/cider with a meal if accompanied by an adult
Off licence sales have the strictest rules - based presumably on the lack of supervision of the actual consumption
Supermarkets are classed as off licence sales

But the licensing act doesn't class anything with less than 0.5% as being alcoholic...
