I don't really drink whisky. It reminds me of my alcoholic grandfather so I tend to picture it as a drink for derelicts (which i know it is mostly not but it is the image in my mind).
Regardless, it is amusing/interesting when name protection is sought for words that have become the generic name for a product line.
I read something the other day where fonterra/milk producers have moved to block the use of the word 'milk' for anything but actual milk from an animal .
Immediately this is to target products such as almond milk/ soy milk. I wonder if it will expand to lotions and potions haha.
