Scotch Whisky

Purpose of the group

The  main  purpose  of  the Cross  Party  Group  on  Scotch Whisky  is to promote  a better understanding of the Scotch Whisky industry to members of the Scottish Parliament. The industry plays a key role in Scotland with regard to the economy, exports, jobs, tourism, the environment and tackling alcohol misuse. This group will provide the forum to discuss these important issues with MSPs from all parties alongside key people from within the Scotch Whisky industry.
