Indian whisky producers can not use the words Scot or Scotch on their products according to a ruling in the Indian High Court. The Judge said the words "Scot" or "Scotch" identified whisky produced in Scotland and no Indian manufacturer could use it to promote or market its liquor.

India Times
"In the first ruling in India relating to the protection of Geographical Indications (GIs) under the WTO-TRIPS agreement, Justice Madan B Lokur agreed that the words “scot” or “scotch” identify whiskey produced in Scotland and no domestic manufacturer can use them to market its liquor. The judgement was delivered on a lawsuit filed by the Scotch whiskey association of UK seeking to restrain permanently, an Indian whiskey manufacturer from using the name “Red Scot” or any other name containing the word “scot” to sell its product."
