Senior representatives of the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) visited Mexico last week (4-7 June) to promote the industry and to sign an agreement with the regulatory body for Tequila.
Mexico is a rapidly growing market for Scotch Whisky, with exports increasing 20% last year to reach £110 million. It is now the ninth biggest overseas market for Scotch.
Demand from aspirational consumers has helped make Scotch one of the fastest growing UK exports to Mexico, representing 8% of all UK exports to the market.
On Friday 6 June, David Frost, SWA chief executive, delivered a talk in the Mexican city of Guadalajara. He gave an overview of the SWA’s work to protect and promote the Scotch Whisky industry around the world, including its commitment to sustainability.
The Scotch Whisky industry launched its ambitious Environmental Strategy in 2009 and it is well on course to meet its targets. For example, use of non-fossil fuel for energy has increased to 16% from 3% since 2008 and greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by 10%. The target for 2050 is for 80% of energy to come from non-fossil fuel.
David Frost also discussed the benefits of Scotch Whisky’s status as a Geographical Indication. This means, by law, Scotch can only be made in Scotland from cereals, water and yeast according to strict legal requirements.
While in Guadalajara the SWA signed a Cooperation Agreement with the Consejo Regulador del Tequila – the Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT). The agreement is designed to protect two globally recognised, iconic spirits and consumers. It will encourage greater co-operation in a range of areas, such as fair competition and promotion of responsible drinking.
David Frost and Alan Park, SWA legal affairs adviser, also met government officials in Mexico City to discuss issues relevant to the Scotch Whisky industry.
David Frost, SWA chief executive, said: “The Cooperation Agreement with the Tequila Regulatory Council will help Scotch Whisky and Tequila work together to improve market access for both spirits and protect their reputation for quality.
“Mexico is an increasingly important market for Scotch Whisky – exports reached £110 million last year and it is now a top ten market. It is good to share the success of the industry with a range of audiences in Mexico and discuss the importance of protecting Scotch Whisky worldwide.
Duncan Taylor, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Mexico, said: “Mexico is the UK’s second largest trading partner in Latin America and is a key strategic market for the UK. Scotch whisky is one of the UK’s fastest growing exports to Mexico, and I am delighted to see this cooperation between the Scotch whisky and tequila industries, which I am confident will lead to further growth in trade between our two countries”.With media enquiries please contact David Williamson at the Scotch Whisky Association on 0131 222 9226/07730 496 151 or email email@example.com.
The SWA is the trade body for the Scotch Whisky industry.
The CRT is the regulatory body for the Tequila industry in Mexico. It protects and promotes Tequila.
