The world's appetite for Scotch whisky continues to grow. You have to wonder how many hangovers the $4.94 billion in export sales caused during 2006.
The Scotch Whisky Association says 2006 was a record year for sales, with exports increasing by 4 percent. The total beat out the old record set back in 1997.
Blended Scotch accounted for $3.79 billion in exports, with single malts increasing sales by 7 percent. Scotch sales in the United Kingdom declined last year.
