    Global whiskey Market

    From today's news. Just-drinks.com is selling a report and this is their 'teaser:'

    Although the international whiskey market continues to be led by India, the global whiskey market now accounts for around 130million cases, easily the largest spirits category. As are producers in other sectors, the whiskey trade are trying to reach a younger audience, without losing their tradition. Scotch whisky is the largest of the whiskey sectors. There are two deluxe Scotch brands amounting to almost 7m cases and 17 standard Scotch whisky brands now selling in excess of 1m cases annually.

    Re: Global whiskey Market

    I don't know a lot about it, but apparently there used to be
    some incredibly huge import duties to be paid on whiskies
    imported into India, and it was only just recently (in the
    last few years) that these have started to come down.

    I've also heard that the ratio of shady imports to official imports
    into India is about 3:1 becuase of the duties.

    The increasing popularity of whiskies and their sudden affordability
    are probably fueling a great deal of growth in that market.
