In contrast, the female alcohol-specific death rate in 2017 for Scotland, at 11.6 deaths per 100,000, was the lowest since 2013, and a statistically significant decrease of 20 percent since 2001.

Scotland, famed as the home of Scotch whisky, remains as the part of Britain with the highest rate of alcohol specific deaths, the report revealed.

Overall, people dying in the United Kingdom from alcohol-related diseases is now at 12.2 deaths per 100,000 people - a level not seen since 2008, their highest ever point.

There has been a 40% increase in the number of people who have died alcohol-specific deaths in Northern Ireland since records began in 2001.

The figures also showed that death rates among men continue to be double the figure recorded for women, at a rate of 16.8 per 100,000 males.

This dramatic increase comes amid several law changes created to cut down on alcohol consumption.

The report said: "Given that the definition of alcohol-specific deaths includes mostly chronic conditions, such as alcoholic liver disease, the increased rates in the older age groups may be a outcome of misuse of alcohol that began years, or even decades, earlier".

There has been a 40% increase in alcohol-specific deaths in Northern Ireland, the biggest change in death rate since 2001 of any United Kingdom country. The figure for Wales was 18 per 100.000.

And in Scotland, a minimum price per unit of 50p was approved by the UK Supreme Court a year ago. The policy, which increased the price of some cheap, strong drinks was welcomed by alcohol campaigners. It was highest in the north-east, with 15.5 deaths per 100,000, despite a decline since 2014.

The number of women dying from alcohol misuse in Britain has reached a record high.

Karen Tyrell, from charity Addaction, said people should remember how excessive alcohol use is often a coping mechanism.

In 2017, Scottish males were twice as likely to die from alcohol-related causes than those in England. When people make a decision to address an alcohol problem, it's a route in to look at other issues too.

She added: "The good news is that everyone can change their relationship with alcohol. There's no 'right" way to do it. Everyone's journey is different and worthwhile. We're encouraging government to include these measures in the forthcoming alcohol strategy'.
