Ohio Liquor Sales have nearly doubled in 20 years

December 30, 2019

Data from the Ohio Department of Liquor Control shows that per gallon liquor consumption has nearly doubled in the last 20 years. Ohioans consumed 8.2 million gallons of liquor in 1999 and this year the consumption is expected to hit 15 million. Retailers said liquor is now their No. 1 alcoholic product and that the increase in liquor stores in grocery stores is proof of that.
