A new study finds that drinking red wine makes people feel relaxed while vodka or whisky boosts energy and aggression respectively.

The study, involving 30,000 people has found drinkers have significantly different emotional responses to different alcoholic beverages.

The study was conducted by experts at Bangor University and King’s College London and found that red wine was more likely to make people feel sexy and relaxed, and at the same time tired and tearful. Spirits was linked to feelings of aggression and restlessness, but also gave people a boost of energy and confidence.

On the other hand, beer increased both relaxation and confidence.

White wine too had a similar effect as its crimson cousin but was far less pronounced.

The data was collected from the Global Drug Survey and published in BMJ Open Journal where they said that understanding emotions associated with alcohol consumption is imperative to addressing alcohol misuse, providing insight into what emotions influence drink choice between different groups in the population.'

Professor Mark Bellis of Bangor University, who is also Public Health Wales' director of policy, research and international development went on to add that for centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka and other spirits has been laced with violence and that their global study suggests even today consuming spirits is more likely to result in feelings of aggression than other drinks.
