EU Revamps Rules on Spirit Drinks

 The Council of  the European Union has given green light for a new ruleset on spirit drinks. The legislative update mainly focuses on the protection of the composition of a number of spirit drinks and preservation of traditional production methods. In the same line, the new Regulation also extends the duration of geographical protections for spirit drinks. Date of application will be determined upon publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. A remarkable point that has not been included in the new Regulation is the exemption of alcoholic beverages from nutrition labelling. Albeit food labelling being covered by a different Regulation (Regulation 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers) it is very questionable the mandatory nutrition labelling of alcoholic beverages will make it to the European agenda again.

Regulation 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, 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
