What is the Legal Drinking Age?

The legal drinking age refers to the earliest age in a country that a person is legally allowed to buy alcoholic beverages, which may be different to the age at which they may be permitted to drink alcohol, especially in the privacy of their home. The legal drinking age varies around the world, from countries in Europe where people may consume alcoholic beverages from a young age, or generally 16 or 17, to states in India where the drinking age is as high as 25. Some Islamic nations prohibit alcohol consumption by Muslims, and others by anyone.
