Brexit

Scotch Whisky is an international drink consumed in over 180 markets across the world. With 90% of Scotch exported, Brexit could have a fundamental impact on our industry - both in the EU27 market - and in emerging markets further afield.

Brexit represents a seismic shift for our industry and one which our members are working hard to plan and adjust for. 

The Scotch Whisky industry is following developments in Westminster closely.

Following the Westminster vote on the Withdrawal Deal on 15th January, it is now imperative that the government and parliamentarians work together constructively and quickly to find a way forward which provides clarity for businesses and employees.

A no-deal Brexit would damage our industry, by forcing cost and complexity into the production and export of Scotch Whisky, and must be avoided.
