Cheers! Scotch Whisky Association gives the drink a good name in Panama

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Scotch whisky has been granted official protection by the government in Panama, to safeguard against imitations. The authorities in Panama have granted an application by The Scotch Whisky Association, made in May 2010, for “Scotch whisky” to be registered and protected as a geographical indication of origin.

The news comes weeks after the Chinese government guaranteed Scotch whisky the same protection. Panama is Scotch Whisky’s 20th largest export market.
