According to Nielsen data, Baby Boomers are drinking more than Millennials with more than two-thirds of Baby Boomers saying they have consumed alcohol in the past month. By way of comparison, just over half of Millennials have consumed alcohol in the past month.

Australian Baby Boomers’ favourite drink is wine with beer a close second. The group is also more likely to have had scotch or whiskey in the past month.
One-in-four Baby Boomers look for “good value” when purchasing wine. Cost is however not always the biggest consideration for Boomers with the group 35 per cent more likely to spend more on “quality wine and spirits”.
