Emerging markets helped boost Scotch whisky exports by 22% in the first half of this year, according to new figures.

The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) said global shipments between January and June reached £1.8bn, up from £1.47bn achieved during the same period in 2010.

The USA remained the top export market by value with shipments hitting £268m, an increase of about 14%.

The SWA also said growth in Asia and South America was "very strong".

Exports to Central and South America reached £214.4m in the first six months of the year - a 49% jump on the same period in 2010 - while shipments to Asia increased by 33% to £422.5m.

Finally we have one positive result in our export led recovery.

Well, the Jocks have a world-leading product. More specifically, the good folks of Islay lead the world.

Does it count as an export when a sassenach like me indulges in a tipple?

I assume this is a textbook (and rare) example of debasing the pound actually working, due to most of the inputs being domestic rather than imported - with the rising costs that would entail.
