Per person, the amount of pure alcohol sold fell 3% between 2011 and 2012, according to a report from NHS Health Scotland. Drink sales were 8% lower than in 2009, the equivalent of about 10 million fewer bottles of wine, three million bottles of spirits or 35 million pints of beer in a year. Despite that, the figures show that 10.9 litres of pure alcohol was sold for every adult in Scotland, the equivalent of every person drinking 21 units of alcohol a week, the safe drinking limit for men but more than the 14 units a week recommended for women.
