Britain consumed a third of all Prosecco produced last year, more than any other country.

As the weather gets warmer, many of us may be reaching for a refreshing glass of prosecco. It turns out an awful lot of us are massive fans of the fizz.

So much so that Britain came out as the number one country for consumption of those glorious Italian bubbles.

Prosecco

The Consortium for the Protection of Prosecco (what is this place? how can we work there? ) said that production increased by 44.8% between 2014 and 2016. That meant a whopping 410.9 million bottles being produced from a bumper harvest.

Three-quarters of that massive export made it overseas, mainly to the US and here in the UK.  Here in the UK, we drank slightly more than two bottles per adult, putting us firmly on top. Drinking: it’s not a competition, but if it was, I suppose we’d be winning?

In other prosecco-related affairs:

🍾 There’s a Prosecco van coming to London
🍾 Sip on bottomless Prosecco in a rainforest afternoon tea
🍾 Or dabble in some boozy cocktails at this after-work haunt
