    Most consumed spirit in World and US?

    I need a credible source, even if online on the Internet, that tells which spirit is the most consumed in the US and Worldwide.

    I am pretty sure Vodka is number 1 after it beat out the past leader bourbon, but I can't find any definitive proof.

    Same goes for worldwide, I think vodka is #1 again, but not sure.

    Any help is gereatly appreciated.

    Is beer is your choice of spirits or you referring to only the "hard stuff"?...

    I don't have a reliable source but I'd "guess" beer

    We are about to ship out nearly 9 million cases this year. I can "almost bet" that the "majority" is "Vodka" Sometimes on particular order's we will run the same label for days and days and days

    According to this site, you're right about the US market.
