Yukon led the nation again last year in per capita alcohol sales, according to Statistics Canada.

In 2012-13, sales amounted to $1,332.10 for every Yukoner.

Sales were also high across the North - at $954.40 per capita in the N.W.T. and Nunavut.

Newfoundland and Labrador actually had the second highest sales in the country at $981.40 per capita.

Overall, Canadians bought $733.70 of alcohol per capita.  

Statistics Canada says the Yukon numbers are heavily influenced by the hundreds of thousands of tourists visiting a territory that only has a population of just under 37,000 people.

Beer was tops in sales for Yukon and Nunavut, while spirits narrowly edged out beer in N.W.T.
