The rules on the labelling, presentation and composition of spirit drinks shall be updated following the initiative of the European Commission and recent approval by the Council of the European Union. The new Regulation aims to protect the quality of European spirits with clear compositional criteria, the strengthening of geographical indications and protection of traditional production methods. The new Regulation will repeal Regulation 110/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 January 2008 on the definition, description, presentation, labelling and the protection of geographical indications of spirit drinks. The proposal includes no rules on nutrition labelling of spirit drinks, considering it likely alcoholic beverages will remain exempted from the obligation to provide nutrition information. The draft is now passed to the European Parliament for review.

Draft Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the definition, description, presentation and labelling of spirit drinks, the use of the names of spirit drinks in the presentation and labelling of other foodstuffs, and the protection of geographical indications for spirit drinks, the use of ethyl alcohol and distillates of agricultural origin in alcoholic beverages, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 110/2008 - link
