A brandy advert with the tagline "Have you tasted a 15-year-old yet?" has caused a storm in the Philippines, according to press reports. The South China Morning Post said today that, following complaints from women's rights groups, the Advertising Board of the Philippines has pulled the ad campaign.

The company behind the slogan, Destileria Limtuaco, has countered the ban by suing the board for 5m pesos. It claims that the board had no legal right to stop the ads, and says that the complaint has caused it "grave and irreparable injury."
