This quiz is based on combining separate entries from Our World in Data.

https://ourworldindata.org/alcohol-consumption (2018 data)

https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/wine-as-share-alcohol-consumption (2016 data)

For the sake of the quiz, I assumed that wine is 12.5% alcohol.

For "Bottles / person", a bottle is 750 mL and we are only counting people over the age of 15.

Spain is regarded as a wine country but it is actually a beer country

people still drink a lot of wine even if beer is preferred ... i mean wine is mass produced all over the country, there's no way we're not on this list

One glass a day. Not too much really.

Apparently the average consumption for men in France was more like 1 bottle per day in previous generations.

A glass a day does seem like quite a lot when you consider that the average is probably brought down by people who don't or can't drink, and by the fact that most people probably don't drink wine *every single day*.

Good thing you noted that there is no data for the Vatican. Between all the wine consumed at Mass (including the stuff that the altar boys like me snuck out of the bottles in the sacristy) and social occasions, I would assume they would rank right up there.

So, Romania and Moldova are adjacent, ethnically more or less the same, speak the same language, yet Moldovans drink more than twice as much as Romanians? And those sots on Sao Tome... no idea what that's about. It's not overrun with tourists, not even drunken Portuguese ones.

Probably they went for small countries outside of Europe, South America and Oceania. With enough time, you can get through all the Latin America countries and then switch to the small African countries. Or, you know, start with the African ones.

Purple is almost always Africa in colour-coded quizzes, you have time to guess pretty much all of them. I don't even know why I guessed island countries first, but it paid off.

I thought green was Africa and purple was Asia. RIP my typing fingers.

I went for Seychelles because of the tourism industry + small size + relative (for Africa) wealth.

When I got a hit there, I knew that purple was Africa, so I went through a couple of "high likelihood" suspects (South Africa, Mauritius, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria) then moved on to ones with a small-ish population (Rwanda, Burundi, Djibouti...) and pretty quickly got the bingo with São Tomé that way.

Admittedly I was close to running out of time, but I had a few seconds left.

And I most definitely did not cheat.😒

Once I got Seychelles to work. I thought well another small island country in Africa and I connected it with Portugal right away.

I have been translating your quizzes into Polish for some time

which have no translation, you have nothing against e.g. this one?

After South Africa wasn't accepted, I was convinced those two countries must be in Asia...kept guessing Israel, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, etc.

Nope.

If Georgia is not in this list, then you don't know anything about it. Georgians drink from 5 to 10 liters per feast. It has the size of a button😀lol
