Record Scotch Sales 2007-04-05

Posted by clype in Money, Scotland, Statistics.

The amount of scotch whisky sold abroad rose to record levels last year 2006 as more than one thousand million bottles were exported.

The value of global sales rose 4 per cent to 2 500 million GBP (4.9bn USD), representing a quarter of all the UK’s food and drink exports.

There was growth in all leading markets in Europe, the Americas and Asia with demand in Venezuela, China and South Africa particularly buoyant.

The industry has recovered strongly in recent years after Asia’s financial crisis hit sales in the late 1990s.
