World’s Favourite Drink

0215-mostalc

A simple spot of data-viz that ties in neatly with our interest in drink consumption patterns and trends, this colour-coded map over on ChartsBin breaks down the most consumed alcoholic beverages by country. Or, in other words, the world’s favourite drinks…

Nutshell summary:

UK, US, Australia and NZ are all fans of beer. Europe reaches for the vino. And that huge blue spot that is Asia and Eastern Europe are all about the spirits. Shame it doesn’t tell you how they’re mixed/consumed… But we’re guessing a lot of it is just neat. Possibly with a rocket fuel martini chaser. (Remind us to dig out the recipe for you. As soon as we track down an English translation, that is.)
