Sakhalin, Kolyma and Chukotka are among the top five regions with the highest vodka consumption in the country. The top 5 regions by this indicator have not changed for several years.

As they say "News" citing data from the Center for Research on Federal and Regional Alcohol Markets (CIFRRA), Sakhalin took the first place in terms of vodka consumed per capita. And here the consumption of this type of alcohol has slightly increased - by 2% and amounted to 12,4 liters per person. The Magadan Region is in second place with an indicator of 11,6 liters, but here they drink a little less vodka - and also by 2%. Chukotka closes the top 5 - here there are 9,4 liters of vodka consumed per person, and here the most noticeable decrease is by 6% at once. The third and fourth places are occupied by the Komi Republic (11,2 liters) and the Republic of Karelia (9,8 liters).

On average, in 2020, per capita vodka consumption in Russia amounted to 4,9 liters, which is 2% more than the same result in 2019. 

The head of the Center for Research on Federal and Regional Alcohol Markets Vadim Drobiz noted that the consumption of vodka did not jump sharply, as expected, due to the fact that in 2020 the movement of Russians outside the country practically stopped. He explained this by the fact that vodka is not a drink of the middle class, not of those who travel abroad. On the other hand, sales of champagne and expensive alcohol grew by an average of 15%.
