Scotch whisky exports up by 22%
"The value of Scotch whisky exports surged by 22% in the first six months of the year, with the equivalent of 570m bottles of whisky sold overseas after sales soared in Asia and South America.
"Foreign shipments of blended and malt whisky were worth £1.8bn, compared with £1.47bn in the first half of 2010, despite the global economic downturn, the relative high cost of whisky and depressed overseas sales by other British exporters.
"The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) said that the strongest sales increases were in Asia, rising by 33% to £423m, and in Central and South America, where the value of exports jumped by nearly 50% to £214m. Sales in the US hit £268m, up 14%, and in France rose by 13%, up to £220m."
