Aye, thereโ€™s a wee dram in Scotland ye say? ๐Ÿค”

Did you know 53 bottles of Scotch Whisky are exported every second across the globe?

According to a new report by the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA), in 2022 alone the drink amounted to 77% of Scotlandโ€™s food and drink exports, which is 26% of all UK food and drink exports.

In fact, the Scotch whisky industry brought ยฃ7.1bn (GVA) into the UK economy in 2022!

To be called Scotch Whisky, legislation states that the spirit must be distilled and matured in oak casks for at least 3 years in Scotland. Single Malt Scotch whisky must also be bottled in Scotland.

This means, 75% of the total GVA of the Scotch Whisky industry is generated in Scotland, equating to ยฃ5.3bn annually.

Today, around 22 million casks lie maturing in warehouses across the country โ€“ that's around 12 billion 70cl bottles for the future.

In other words, we make a LOT of whisky!

In the ten day lead up to Burns night I thought Iโ€™d post ten of the finer examples of the tartan โ€˜tattโ€™ Iโ€™ve lovingly crafted over the last decade.
