For years, America was basically a communist state. Not because of any reverence for Lenin, mind you, but because of our nation's fixation with the international symbol of Russia, vodka. That booze has been the best-selling spirit in the US since 2007, but its tyranny ends now, as whiskey is finally projected to surpass the stuff in sales. Well done, 'Merica!
Quartz reports that, while vodka will retain the volume crown (meaning more gallons of it will be sold), whiskey is set to overtake the liquor in sales. It's also projected to further the sales gap in the next few years, so this is no fluke. Whiskey is set to comfortably rule the market after a steady, hard-won comeback.
