The following commentary and analysis is based on publicly available data published by HMRC via the HMRC Overseas Trade Statistics database. The review provides an analysis of the annual export statistics for Scotch Whisky, with commentary from the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) on the trade flows of different Scotch Whisky categories to different regions and, to some extent, individual countries.
While HMRC provides information on seven different commodity codes, for the purposes of this document, and in order to simplify the analysis, an aggregation of categories has been calculated in order to provide an overview for:
Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Blended Bottled Scotch Whisky*
Bulk Scotch Whisky**
