Utah's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control has provided FOX 13 with its annual list of top selling alcohols in the state.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of so many bars and restaurants, there's been a shakeup. Beers also saw some changes because 3.2 beer went away. On "Utah Booze News: An Alcohol Policy Podcast" produced by FOX 13 and The Salt Lake Tribune, DABC spokesman Terry Wood goes down the list of top sellers and reveals just how many boxes of wine people are buying during the pandemic.
"We’re seeing people stock up with larger sizes," Wood said during the latest episode of the Utah Booze News podcast.

Here's the top selling wines (note the SIZE of the boxes of wine). Veuve Clicquot remains the top selling wine:
Here's the top selling spirits. For the first time in years, Barton's Vodka was removed as the top selling alcohol. The DABC suspects that is because bars and restaurants closed for part of fiscal year 2020. People bought half-gallon sized bottles of Tito's Vodka.
