The authorities in Panama have granted an application by The Scotch Whisky Association, made in May 2010, for ‘Scotch Whisky’ to be registered and protected as a ‘geographical indication of origin’ (GI).

Panama will receive better protection from imitation ‘whisky’, following a decision to formally recognize Scotch Whisky as a product that can only be made in Scotland.
