The Scotch Whisky Association has warned the Brasserie de Bercloux, the producers of French ‘Scotch’, that it will send in the lawyers with the implicit demand to remove all Scottish associations from its whisky – Le Whisky Bercloux. The makers say that it is made from raw whisky imported from a distillery to the north of Glasgow before being matured in oak barrels by a French family firm. However, under British and European law, a whisky can only be called Scotch when it has been made and aged entirely in Scotland. The Independent 06/09/08 page 23
