APPARENTLY IT'S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE SCOTS

BBC - Adults in Scotland are drinking the equivalent of 46 bottles of vodka each in a year, a study has suggested. The research was based on industry sales data analyzed by NHS Health Scotland.

The Scottish government said the figure, which had remained static since 2005, was the equivalent of 537 pints or 130 bottles of wine per person. . .

People in Scotland drank 25% more alcohol per head of population than individuals in England and Wales, the figures suggested.
