Scotch Whisky Group Challenges U.K. Minimum Pricing

A legal challenge to the Scottish government’s plan for minimum pricing on alcohol kicks off this week in Edinburgh, with the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) claiming it would break UK and European Union law. A petition for Judicial Review in the Court of Session is being launched on Tuesday by the trade body, along with SpiritsEurope and Comite Vins, its counterparts for the respective spirits and wine sectors in Europe.
