Drinks group Diageo, may have to relabel its Ciroc vodka because of draft EU regulations preventing spirits made from grapes from being promoted as vodka.

The EU regulations of spirits in contain a proposal that vodka should be fermented with yeast from “raw materials based on grain, potato, sugar beet and/or molasses.”

The regulations have no mention of using grapes to produce vodka, which is what Diageo uses to make Ciroc.

The Gin and Vodka Association of Great Britain (GVA) has withdrawn its support for the new regulations in protest against the regulations.
