Top Scotch whisky export markets

The Scotch Whisky Association has published the details of the world’s biggest Scotch whisky export markets by both volume and value.

WhiskyThe data showed that despite a 5% reduction in volume, Scotch whisky exports increased in value to a record $4.3 billion, which works out at £135 per second, over 2012.

The record value of exports means that Scotch whisky now equates to around one quarter of Britain’s total food and drinks exports.
