Different countries around the world are known for different things. Each of the distinctive characteristics, traditions, and tastes found in each country’s culture is what makes the country unique.
For example, Italy is known for its romanticism, vineyards, and pasta. Spain is known for traditional flamenco dancing and paella. Colombia is known for rhythmic beats and spicy cuisine.
All countries in the world have unique flavors as seen in their traditions, food, music, and history. Another aspect defining specific countries is their love for booze. While alcoholic beverages are popular all over the world, here are the countries best known for partaking in the consumption of alcohol.
The country that consumes the highest amount of alcohol is none other than Ireland. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, as some of the world’s most popular beverages originate here. Baileys, Jameson, and Guinness are just a few of the Irish brands to sweep the drinking lovers across the globe.
In second place, comes Russia. Russians are known for their love of vodka and they even have a tradition that once a bottle of spirits is opened, it has to be finished.
Thirdly, France consumes a notable amount of booze as well. France is the second-largest producer of wine in the world and specializes in Champagne.
Lastly, Germany consumes a ton of beer, among other spirits that cause them to be the fourth largest country in terms of alcohol consumption.
Getting together to have a drink… or seven with friends and family is one of the many ways in which people bond. It doesn’t quite matter where you are in the world, you can enjoy a boozy beverage virtually anywhere.
