Bangalore: Alcohol is one thing common in every part of the world. While, there are few countries that drink socially, there are also countries that ritually binge drink. Here are the countries where alcoholic drinks are most consumed.


Citizens of the tiny, post-Soviet republic of Moldova are the world's biggest drinkers with the average Moldovan consuming 18.22 liters of alcohol annually. The country consumes the highest amount of alcohol per capita in the world. Moldovans drink nearly three times the global average of 6.1 litres per individual per year. Much of their consumption is made up by the "unrecorded" drinking of bootleg alcohol. The nation is a major wine producer, with several people drinking cheap homemade wine, vodka and other spirits. The other popular alcoholic beverages are divin (Moldovan brandy), beer, and local wine.

May Indians drink on festivels like new year X mas Deewali etc. but not drinking like pigs as in other countries like in Moldovia. Those who are writing that Punjab Haryana Goa are above these countries do not do proper research, just a heresay.
