According to statistics from the SWA, 1.5 million people were attracted to visitor centres at Scotlands distilleries last year. Total spend at these attractions was upwards of £50million with an average spend of £32.50 per visitor per visit. This equates, I suppose, to approximately 1 standard distillery bottling per visitor.
Great news for the Industry as its a rise in figures compared to the previous years.
