This is how much Danes drink and smoke

New consumer statistics show Danes are buying more hard liquor and cigarettes than in previous years, The Local reports.

Danish consumers purchased some 45 million litres of pure alcohol in 2015, according to figures released by Statistics Denmark on Tuesday. 

The amount itself was basically the same as in 2014, but a further breakdown shows that sales of spirits were up slightly to 1.4 litres of pure alcohol per inhabitant, while sales of beer and wine were down. 

Beer and wine are still the Danes’ alcoholic beverages of choice, however. They account for 82 percent of all sales, while spirits account for 17.5 percent and so-called ‘alcopops’ made up just 0.7 percent of sales.
