Whiskey War Waxes On


In several earlier posts, we’ve tracked the ongoing battle between Glenora Distillers and the Scotch Whiskey Association respecting the propriety of Glenora’s use of the word GLEN in its trademark GLEN BRETON.   Most recently, the Federal Court of Appeal found that Glenora was able to use GLEN without misleading Canadian consumers into thinking its product originated in Scotland.

News today that this brouhaha may not be over quite yet: it appears that the Scotch Whiskey Association has sought leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada.
