Alcohol content of a glass of beer, wine, champagne and schnapps
As the world’s most populous country, China also consumes more alcohol than any other country. In 2014, China’s alcohol consumption amounted to 27.5 percent of global consumption. The United States accounted for 12.1 percent of total alcohol consumption. Though beers, lagers, and ciders are the most consumed types of alcoholic beverage, tequila and gin had the highest growth in consumption between 2015 and 2016 among alcoholic beverages.
Global Wine Market
When one thinks of wine, countries like Italy, France, and Spain come to mind, and for good reason. In 2018, those three countries were the top producers of wine in the world. That year, Italy produced some 54.8 million hectoliters of wine, more than any other country. Italy also topped the list for the highest per capita wine consumption worldwide in 2014, though by 2018 France is expected to overtake Italy.
