Check Out the 10 Drunkest Countries in the World: Belgium, Germany and Ireland are not on the list

Alcohol, in all its forms, is consumed worldwide, but shockingly there are parts of the world where the majority of people, and especially women, are abstainers. From the recent report of the World Health Organization, individuals globally, above 15 years of age, drink on average 6.2 litres of pure alcohol per year. The biggest drinkers can be found in the developed countries in the EU and America, while the lowest consumption rates are found in the Southeast Asia region. And beer is NOT the most consumed beverage in the world. It is second in line, after spirits. Only 8% of the total consumption in the world is in the form of wine. And Belgium, Germany and Ireland are not on the list. Sorry guys. So behold, the top 10 “drunkest” countries.

(The numbers are for pure alcohol consumption per capita per year [15+])

 

1. Belarus – 17.5 litres

Surprised, or not? Belarus holds the first place in drinking. Starting from 1990, this country has shown a continuous rise in the level of alcoholic beverages consumed. Out of the total amount consumed, Belarusians drink 47% spirits and 17% beer. And guys drink three times more than girls. Should we be surprised about that one?

2. Republic of Moldova – 16.8 litres

Second is the Republic of Moldova with 16.8 litres of pure alcohol consumed per capita. They also favour spirits over beer. The ratio is 65:30 in favour of spirits. They don't fancy wine much. As in Belarus, the guys drink three times more than the girls.

4. Russian Federation – 15.1 litres

The world-renowned vodka lovers come 4th on the list. They, of course, also drink spirits more than beer, and consume 4 billion bottles of vodka per year. Yes, that’s 4 billion bottles for the approximately 146 million national population…

6. Ukraine – 13.9 litres

Russia might have vodka, but Ukraine has horilka. And because it isn’t hot enough by itself with the 40% alcohol inside, they usually add red peppers to it. Sweet. When it comes to consumption, Ukrainians like their spirits and beer more or less equally (consumption rates stand at 48% spirits and 40% beer).

7. Andorra – 13.8 litres

Andorrans are obviously wine lovers. 45% drink wine, 35% beer and 20% spirits. And there is not that high a difference in males vs. females’ consumption. Who would have thought?

When you visit Hungary, you drink palinka in its 10 varieties. It has the most equal distribution of drinking: 36% beer, 34% spirits and 30% wine, so there won't be any confusion there.
