SEOUL, Aug. 11 (Yonhap) -- Sales of whiskey in South Korea fell sharply in the first half of 2013 apparently due to a protracted economic recession, industry data showed Sunday.

According to the data, sales of whiskey came to 916,745 cartons in the January-June period, down 13.5 percent from 1.06 million cartons tallied a year earlier. Each carton contains 18 bottles of 500 milliliters of whiskey.
