And finally…

The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) is taking legal action against a distillery in the US for adding the word ‘Highland’ to its labels and “passing off” its products as Scotch.

The labels highlighted are part of the ‘Virginia-Highland Whisky’ series.

The SWA claims that Virginia Distillery Company’s use of the world ‘Highland’ is unlawful as it is a term “reserved exclusively for Scotch whisky under US federal regulations” and is seeking a court order instructing the distillery to remove the term from its labels.
