Dear Mr Gordon

 

Thank you for your request dated 11 June under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA).

 

Your Request

 

What is the value and percentage of revenues collected from 'whisky export
duty' allocated to Scotland & UK in the last 5 Years of GERS?

 

Response to your request

 

Exports, including exports of whisky, do not attract duty in the UK. 
Therefore, no ‘whisky export duty’ revenue is reported for either Scotland
or the UK in GERS.

 

Information on exports is available from:
