Who drinks the most champagne?

It’s not a personal question but of nations. The biggest export market for champagne is the United Kingdom with 36 million bottles (in 2008), flowed by the USA. Here’s the top list (source: CIVC/The Drinks Business):

  • UK: 36 M bottles
  • USA: 17 M
  • Germany: 12 M
  • Belgium: 10 M
  • Italy: 9 M
  • Japan: 8 M
  • Switzerland: 5 M
  • Spain: 4 M
  • Australia: 3,7 M
  • The Netherlands: 3,5 M
  • Sweden: 2 M
  • Canada: 1,5 M
  • UAE: 1,4 M
  • Russia: 1,3 M
  • Singapore: 1,2 M
  • China: 0,9 M
  • Brazil: 0,7 M
  • India: 0,2 M

But who consumes the most per capita? We’ve not done the numbers. Could it be the Swiss? Or is it the French (who are not on the export stats)?
