21 February 2012

Scottish Parliament to host exhibition on history of Scotch WhiskyThe Scottish Parliament is to host an exhibition on the history of Scotch Whisky, MSP Tricia Marwick has announced.

The Scottish Parliament will host an exhibition titled 'Scotch Whisky From Grain to Glass' in November, as one of a number of events planned by the Scotch Whisky Association to mark its centenary. The exhibition will run from November 2012 until January 2013, in the Parliament's Main Hall.

Tricia Marwick, Scottish Parliament Presiding Officer, said: The importance of the Scotch Whisky industry, particularly to rural Scotland, has long been recognised and the Scottish Parliament is delighted to be hosting this exhibition, in partnership with the Scotch Whisky Association, to mark the centenary.

'The exhibition will bring together the tools of the trade, the artwork, and maps of Scotland’s distilleries to show how Scotch Whisky became a national icon.

'Whisky is of course a key component of our cultural and business export success and I am certain that this illustrative exhibition will attract many visitors to Holyrood.'
