Misuse of Scottish names and images

Scotland-related names and devices

14 May 2012

In many cases, rather than misuse of the description "Scotch Whisky", local producers adopt more indirect indications of Scottish origin to suggest their products are Scotch Whisky. These may be brand names associated with Scotland or the UK, such as Loch Ness, London Tower or Highland Chief, tartan, figures in Scottish dress or company names likely to be connected Scotland or the UK.
