What are the total stocks of Scotch Whisky in this country?

In 1939 the stocks of Scotch in this country were 374,300,000 litres of pure alcohol, but by 1945 they had fallen to less than 247 million litres. Since then they have risen in response to demand and by 1990 had risen tenfold to 2,543 million litres. Stocks of mature and maturing whisky are now sufficient to cover projected sales for almost nine years.
