New guidelines to protect whisky from foreign imitation, including new rules on labelling and bottling, are coming into force in Scotland.
Some of the provisions:
* Five categories of Scotch Whisky are defined for the first time; Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Single Grain Scotch Whisky, Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, Blended Grain Scotch Whisky, and Blended Scotch Whisky.
* These compulsory category sales terms will be required to appear clearly and prominently on all labels.
* A requirement to only bottle Single Malt Scotch Whisky in Scotland.
* A ban on the use of the term "Pure Malt".
