Queenstown Lakes District is the Booze Capital of New Zealand.

“It has 220 on-licence premises, 70 off-licences and 13 club licences. With a population of 22,956, that means more than one licensed premises for every 75 residents — the highest ratio in New Zealand.”

To give that a little context: Queenstown is a major tourism destination. This study does not mean that the residents of Queenstown Lakes District are total pissheads, although they could be….. I would assume that a large portion of the licensed premises are catering to tourists.
