Blog: Andy MortonFrom absinthe to wadadli: Around the world in 80 drinks

Andy Morton | 10 December 2013

Here's an interesting guide - a list of 80 countries and their most iconic drinks.

The infographic, from the Wine Investor courtesty of Visual.ly, has all the usual contenders in there: sangria from Spain, single malt from Scotland and vodka from Russia. 

But some drinks firms will be pleased to see a few of their brands make the list. The Coca-Cola Co has the US sewn up with its namesake soft drink, while Rémy Cointreau gets a look in with Barbados's Mount Gay rum. And while SABMiller may have had a few problems with Foster's Group since it bought the unit in 2011, at least its Victoria Bitter beer is this list's Australian representative.
