Scotch Whisky & Peru
In response to recent comments and questions regarding Scotch Whisky exports to Peru, the SWA says:
"Peru is a growing market for Scotch Whisky with exports worth £32 million last year. Following implementation of the EU-Peru Free Trade Agreement in 2013, Scotch is exported tariff-free to Peru - down from 9% - and is recognised as a geographical indication (GI), a product that must be made in Scotland. The SWA would seek the same conditions under a future UK-Peru FTA once the UK leaves the EU and we are working closely with the UK Government on this and other Brexit-related matters."
