Original Message Wow, Russia, that is some impressive imbibing.

quoted from link: Who drinks most vodka, gin, whisky and rum?

ASIA'S growing middle classes are driving demand in the global spirits market. According to IWSR, a market-research firm, consumption last year grew by 1.6% to 27 billion litres—and China, the world’s biggest market, quaffed 38% of that. ..... The most popular of these is vodka, mainly because it is drunk in copious amounts in Russia. Russians downed nearly 2 billion litres of the stuff in 2012, equivalent to 14 litres for every man, woman and child.

check out the chart. Russia is off the charts ha ha. You know, vodka makes a good sanitizer. Maybe that is what is skewing this data. Any Russians want to confirm or deny these reports?
