As one of Scotch whisky’s key markets, South Korea imported £115.4m worth of the spirit in 2013, despite the beginning of slowed growth in the wider Asia Pacific region.

This is a result of a declining spirits market in the wider Asia Pacific region amid political turbulence, crackdowns and economic uncertainty.
