SALT LAKE CITY — Booze is big business in Utah.

The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Services recorded $557 million in sales over the past fiscal year, with roughly $230 million of that going to the state's general fund, public safety and school lunch programs for children in need.

FOX 13 News requested a list of the top selling alcohols in Utah. When it comes to spirits, Tito's Vodka in various sizes took the top three spots (the figures do account for bars and clubs purchasing alcohol).
