Top Liquor Brands of 2012 in Montgomery County

Once again, vodka brands top the list of of liquor sold in Montgomery County in 2012.

Since Patch launched in Montgomery County in 2010, we've stirred up year-end lists of the county's favorite liquor brands. The lists have made such a splash with readers that we decided to check back with the county's Department of Liquor Control to see which libations were lined up in our liquor cabinets in 2012.

Diane Wurdeman, who works with the county retail stores, ranked the liquors by the volume sold, broken down into the most popular sizes, flavors or proofs within a brand, rather than the most popular brands overall.

A big thanks to Wurdeman for her help!

Now THIS is the kind of reporting I can stand behind. Cheers! Is there a similar list for beer/wine? Wait, Aristocrat?! See, you close down the McDonald's on East-West Highway, and this is what you get! Teenagers buying horrible vodka on fake ids. I mean, who else would drink that lighter fluid? Ok, broke college kids, but they're getting it cheaper at Tick Tock in College Park.
