Whiskyland within the EU and Wengland out.
It could get really painful if whisky is going to cost as much in Wengland as in – say – Sweden!
More Scotch whiskey is consumed in a month than cognac in a year.
Scotch Whisky adds £3.3 billion directly and its total impact is to add nearly £5bn overall to UK GDP. Every £1 of value added in the industry produces another £0.52 of value in the broader economy. The industry is the UK’s largest single food and drink sector. It accounts for 25% of the UK’s food and drink exports.
In value added Scotch Whisky is bigger than the UK’s iron/steel, textiles, shipbuilding, or computer industries; about half the size of the UK’s pharmaceuticals or aerospace industries; and one third the size of the entire UK car industry.
