India is not Scotland
Scotch is a highly regulated liquor. In order to call a liquor “Scotch”, it has to be made primarily in Scotland. I don’t know what kind of internation governing body can endorse this, but an Indian court has ruled that Indian whiskey manufacturers cannot use the words “Scot” or “Scotch” to describe their products. Apparently, the Scotch Whisky Association of the United Kingdom brought a suit against an Indian liquor company to try and force them to drop “Scot” and/or “Scotch” from their brand names.
Reminds me of the state of Kentucky, and why Kentucky Fried Chicken changed their name to KFC, and the Kentucky Derby changed their name to “The Run for the Roses”:
In 1990, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, mired in debt, took the unusual step of trademarking their name. Henceforth, anyone using the word “Kentucky” for business reasons–inside or outside of the state–would have to obtain permission and pay licensing fees to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
