**UPDATE** Scotch Whisky Association drops lawsuit against Virginia Distillery Co., over Virginia-Highland whisky.

Here’s the link to our previous piece about this suit over that Scotch Trooper affiliated whisky and the Scotch Whisky Association’s attempt to make a mountain out of a molehill based on the use of the designation “Virginia-Highland” and the use of the Scotch Trooper logo on a bottle which, as it happens, includes the work “Scotch.”

The CEO of the Virginia Distillery Co., posted this statement on the company’s website back when the lawsuit got going noting that they “stand behind” their product and its labeling.

The Scotch Whisky Association has voluntarily dismissed the case. and the AP reports that the Virginia Distillery issue da statement saying his company is working towards an amicable resolution of the dispute.

Ashley Brandt

Hi there! I’m happy you’re here. My name is Ashley Brandt and I’m an attorney in Chicago representing clients in the Food and Beverage, Advertising, Media, and Real Estate industries. A while back I kept getting calls and questions from industry professionals and attorneys looking for advice and information on a fun and unique area of law that I’m lucky enough to practice in. These calls represented a serious lack of, and need for, some answers, news, and information on the legal aspects of marketing and media. I've got this deep seeded belief that information should be readily available and that the greatest benefit from the information age is open access to knowledge... so ... this blog seemed like the best way to accomplish that. I enjoy being an attorney and it’s given me some amazing opportunities, wonderful experiences, and an appreciation and love for this work. I live in Chicago and work at an exceptional law firm, Goldstein & McClintock, with some truly brilliant people. Feel free to contact me at any time with any issues, comments, concerns… frankly, after reading this far, I hope you take the time to at least let me know what you think about the blog and how I can make it a better resource.
