In truth, most of the barley isn't even from the UK
This comment was made in another thread on these pages. It made me curious....
Can we quantify this?
Do we know (in percentage terms) just what quantity of barley used in the Scotch industry is UK-grown?
How much of it comes from outside the UK?
From which other countries is it coming from?
I once heard that Mount Franklin barley from Australia was exported to Scotland for use in whisky making, but I've not heard it confirmed anywhere.
Can anyone shed light on these questions?
