The average amount spent by drinkers in the on-trade increased from £44 to £45 between August 2012 and August 2013, although there was a bigger increase in the amount spent on drinking at home, new figures show.

Data from the Wilson Drinks Report,​ from a survey of 1,640 British adult drinkers, found men spend on average £53 per month going out, with women spending £37.

Biggest spenders are bitter/ale drinkers (£55), followed by lager drinkers (£53) and cider drinkers (£49).

Average monthly spend on alcohol for drinking at home increased from £29 in August 2012 to £32 last month. More adults are mainly drinking at home (63%) than those that drink out of home (28%).

Lager (19%) remains the most popular drink amongst British adults, followed by red wine (18%), according to the research published in the Wine & Spirit Trade Association Q3 Market Report.

Spirits are drunk most often by younger adults, wine drunk most often by older adults.
