We drink a quarter more alcohol than the rest of the country
Scots are booziest in Britain
By Campbell hic! Gunn
SCOTS consume 25 per cent more alcohol per head than drinkers across the rest of Britain.
The average adult now drinks the equivalent of nearly 540 pints of beer or 46 bottles of vodka a year.
Startling new figures to be published today show that the 50.5 million litres of pure alcohol sold in Scotland in 2009 was enough for every drinker over 18 to exceed the weekly male drinking guidelines every week. The figures also suggest Scots are out-drinking their counterparts in the rest of Britain by an average of two-and-a-half pints or large glasses of wine per week.
