Different regions around the world have different drinking habits. When you think vodka your first thought goes to Russia and the Scandinavian countries. For whisky you have the Scotts and beer depends on wherever you’re from. So what happens when your drinking habits are not compatible with the region you’re in. Are you the black ship in your drinking crew so to speak. Do you drink like a Kenyan? Use the booze calculator to find out.

The booze calculator helps you find out your drinking nationality by measuring how much you have taken in the past week. Considering we had Christmas this week dont be surprised if you find yourself in the category of major drinkers. Just submit the pints of beer you’ve had, glasses of wine, or single measure of spirits, choose the country you’re from and click to compare.

If what you’ve been drinking is not on the list then you are part of those who drink the so called others.  This category is dominant in swathes of sub-Saharan Africa, largely due to the popularity of beer made from sorghum, a grain that thrives in hot climates and can withstand harsh droughts. Toping the list in this category are Nigeria, Uganda, Rwanda, South Korea and Sierra Leone.

Soju, a liquor made from rice, dominates in South Korea – and local favourite Jinro Soju is also reportedly the best-selling brand of spirit in the world.

As beer is defined in the data as being based on malt, and wine from grapes, any other fermented drink, whether made from sorghum, maize, millet, rice, or from fruits other than grapes, would fall into the “other” category.

The top five consumers for the other categories are:


  1. Namibia
  2. Gabon
  3. Romania
  4. Lithuania
  5. Czech Republic


  1. Portugal
  2. France
  3. Andorra
  4. Denmark
  5. Croatia


  1. Moldova
  2. Grenada
  3. Belarus
