Around the World In 80 Drinks

Today’s infographic is named after one of my favorite books — Around the World in 80 Drinks. Although the name is a bit of a cheat, because while there are flags from 80 nations on the poster, there are only 75 drinks shown, as some are double up. Of those 75, only 10 are beers, which seems low to me. Also, the Czech Republic is represented by Becherovka, an herbal digestive, rather than a beer. Given that the Czechs drink more beer than any other country, that’s surprising. Curiously, it was created by Wine Investment, and there’s very few wines, too. But visually, it’s pretty cool looking.

    Good old Becherovka! In Prague a few years ago we popped into U Fleku & were served a shot of it along with their signature dark beer. “Tastes like medicine,” said a nearby Swedish tourist. 2 years ago in Paris I tried to buy some absinthe only to be told it was illegal to sell it. How does that jibe with this graphic, I wonder.
