Scotsman: Chinese Offer Hope Of Action on Fake Scotch.
The Scotch Whisky Association has been campaigning for increased protection in China for some time. The whisky market for Scotch is worth £44 million a year to Scottish distillers and it is one of the fastest-growing in the world.
However, producers have been alarmed by the number of imitation Scotch brands circulating in China. About 200 fake products have been found in the past two years alone.
