Boozy Brits enjoy their first glass of wine of the evening at 6:52pm – according to new research commisoned by ECigaretteDirect, who polled 670 people to mark the launch of their new Chardonnay flavoured e-liquid.
Researchers found that 6:52pm was the average time people cracked open a bottle of wine. “The best time of the evening to open the vino as it fell right before putting the children to bed, dinner, and the start of prime time television.”
The study also found that the average number of glasses of wine consumed each evening was 2.7.
When broken down into individual weekdays, Wednesday night proved to have the latest wine opening time, 7:28pm, whilst Friday had the earliest at 6:17pm.
Age also played a large factor in the result with those aged 20 – 30 having the earliest average opening time, 6:37pm. The 40 – 50 age bracket closely followed this at 6:43pm. Those aged between 30 and 40 were the latest wine openers, getting out the corkscrew at 7:12pm.
However, a majority of respondents, 84%, said that they aimed to have at least two nights alcohol free with Monday and Tuesday being the most common choices. Weekend drinking habits were excluded from the poll.
