Israelis drank more alcohol in 2009 and drink vodka more than any other alcoholic beverage, according to a survey conducted by the BDI business information company. Vodka leads the sales in the alcoholic beverages industry (not including beer, separate categories like wine, and Duty Free sales) with sales of about 16 million bottles – about 75% of all bottles sold in 2009 in the alcoholic beverages industry. In 2009, Israelis consumed 21 million bottles – a 5% rise compared to the previous year. This is a significantly lower increase than the one recorded in the industry in 2008, which saw an 11% rise in the number of bottles sold compared to 2007.
