Glenora Distillers in Cape Breton gets to use “glen” to advertise its single-malt whisky.
Since 2000, the company has been battling in court for the name Glen Breton with the Scotch Whisky Association. On Friday, the Federal Court of Appeal decided in Glenora’s favour.
The Scots claimed the use of the name “glen” would mislead customers to think it was a Scottish whisky.
“It’s nothing we’ve ever proclaimed. We’re Canada’s only single-malt whisky and we’re proud of that,” Glenora spokesman Bob Scott said.
