Surprising Study Shows Texans Love RumPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX – A study conducted recently by National Today shows that Texans love rum.
It's no secret that Texans love their booze. In 2018 alone Texas was ranked the number two state in total alcohol consumption by drinking 51.8 million gallons of alcohol.
This Sunday, Texas will add to that number because it will be National Rum Day. To figure out how much ammunition to send to liquor stores, National Today partnered with Goslings Rum to see which state drank more rum than others. The results spoke numbers for Texas livers.
When it comes to the most rum-loving states, New York takes the top spot with Florida, Texas, New Jersey, and California rounding out the top five.
The survey revealed that rum is popular across the age spectrum, but millennials are the clear connoisseurs of the spirit with nearly half of rum lovers (47%) falling into that age range.
According to the survey, 37% of Americans over the age of 21 said that rum drinks were their favorite liquor to drink on the beach and 26% said it was their favorite to drink in any hot weather.
So on August 16 remember to grab some rum and celebrate National Rum Day. Always remember don't drink and drive.
