Whisky producers in Scotland have won a court battle in India to stop Indian manufacturers from using the words Scot or Scotch on their products.

The Delhi High Court ordered one Indian company, Golden Bottling, which has a whisky brand called Red Scot, to pay 810,000 rupees (£10,000) in damages and costs to the Scotch Whisky Association.

Judge Madan Lokur said: “I am satisfied the domestic manufacturer is liable to be restrained from passing off its Red Scot Whisky as a produce of Scotland. This can only be done by injuncting it from using the word Scot or an other word similar in the whisky manufacturer by it.”
