Alcohol consumption in Estonia at more than ten-year low in 2015

According to an overview provided by the Estonian Institute of Economic Research, alcohol consumption in Estonia decreased for the third year in a row in 2015 — to the lowest level seen in over ten years.

Converted into liters of absolute alcohol, 13.8 liters of legal alcohol per resident were sold in Estonia last year.
Deducting tourist consumption and accounting for some degree of consumption of illegal alcohol (0.5 liters per person) brought the total amount of alcohol consumption, as measured in absolute alcohol, to 8.7 liters per resident, or 10.3 liters per adult. Thus alcohol consumption in Estonia decreased for the third year in a row.

Compared to the year before, alcohol consumption per adult resident decreased by 0.8 liters.
