Scotch Whisky is now a recognised Geographical Indication in Indonesia

The Scotch Whisky Association (SAW) said today that Scotch whisky has gained a Geographical Indication (GI) in the country. The GI recognition means the term 'Scotch whisky' can only be used for products made in accordance with the industry's strict classification rules.

Indonesia now joins about 100 other countries which have officially recognised Scotch, the SWA said.

"Securing GI protection in Indonesia is another important step in delivering future success for Scotland and the UK's most important food and drink export," said Lindesay Low, the SWA's legal deputy director. "Gaining increased protection for Scotch whisky is fundamental to ensuring that consumers have confidence in the quality, provenance and history of what they are buying.

"Our successful application to register 'Scotch Whisky' as a GI in Indonesia gives the industry a much greater level of legal protection."
