Scotch Whisky Brexit Brief
On balance, the draft Withdrawal Agreement and accompanying Political Declaration on the Future UK-EU Relationship stand up well against the Scotch Whisky industry's Brexit priorities.
The SWA therefore supports approval of the two negotiated texts by the UK and European Parliaments.
If the deal is rejected, this will create considerable uncertainty for the industry and greatly increase the potential of a no-deal Brexit in March 2019.
