Whiskey consumption in the United Kingdom 2002-2018

This statistic displays the annual amount of home produced whiskey released for consumption in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2002 to 2018. In 2011, approximately 257.3 thousand hectoliters of pure alcohol from whiskey was cleared in the UK, which decreased to 227.1 thousand hectoliters by 2018. The Scotch whiskey industry is a valuable manufacturing industry, with significant contributions made to the British economy and an overall increase in the value of exports. The industry, however, is hindered by ever-increasing levels of duty applied per liter of pure alcohol.
