With the exciting announcement of Bridgerton season 2 in the making and Bridgerton seasons 3 and 4 now confirmed, we’re all getting geared up for the drama and decadence of the Netflix series. We can’t wait to see all their lavish parties onscreen yet again, but have you ever wondered just how much the characters are drinking?
The Bottle Club (opens in new tab) has found that the Netflix hit "consumed the most units out of the TV shows we looked at, with a whopping 3909.3 units drunk. That is over 400% more than the second-highest show on our list - The Witcher." It’s unsurprising when you think of the number of celebrations, parties, and fancy crystal wine and champagne glasses we've seen in every episode.
The Bottle Club has done a bit of digging and has announced who are the booziest characters out of the Bridgerton cast.

The biggest drinker of season one was the Duke of Hastings himself, Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page). The Bottle Club says they calculated the duke drank 19.5 units onscreen, equivalent to two bottles of wine throughout the season, with red wine being his drink of choice. Sadly, we now know Simon won’t be returning for season two. *Sigh*
However, the Bottle Club has predicted that the person who will be the "booziest" in season two is likely to be Anthony Bridgerton.
Fans of the books will know that season two is going to shift from Daphne Bridgerton’s love life to the Viscount's. We’re likely to see Anthony juggle a lot of drama and probably have a few more drunken brawls as we saw in the first season. He’s been predicted to drink three bottles throughout the new season.
Unsurprisingly, coming in at number two as Bridgerton's booziest character is Queen Charlotte. And seeing as she's the most prestigious guest and gets invited to all the fabulous parties, it makes sense that drinks will always be flowing when she's around. As the queen, she probably gets treated to the best of the best when it comes to booze.
The third is predicted to be Colin Bridgerton—we saw him face his fair share of hardship in season one and with his exciting travels to Greece, he’s likely to let loose.
Fourth is Eloise Bridgerton. Now, being the most ambitious and intelligent woman on the ‘ton, she’ll be facing her fair share of arduous parties and courting throughout season two now that Daphne has married and moved away. The pressure will be on especially as she continues her hunt for Lady Whistledown's true identity.
Fifth on the list of Bridgerton’s booziest characters is Lady Portia Fetherington. She, too, will be dealing with a lot in season two. We left her reeling over the sudden death of her husband and loss of their wealth.
Bridgerton season 2 will be sure to feature just as many dramatic parties and social events as season 1, as more characters take on the ‘ton. We can’t wait for Lady Whistledown to spill more tea, and there's likely to be a fair few alcoholic drinks spilled along the way!
