Statistics recently published by the Scotch Whisky Association show that the market for Scotch whisky in China is expanding rapidly. In 2004 export sales to China trebled; and in 2005 they rose by a further 86% to 46m. We believe that the Chinese edition of Whisky Classified by David Wishart will be very popular, selling in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.

David Wishart hopes to present Whisky Classified in Chinese at the forthcoming Whisky Live Festival in Shanghai, publication schedules permitting.
