Wine Law 3/2019

The Wine and Spirits Board has circulated a Wine Law to invite comments on the proposed amendments to the regulations. Most of the amendments are based on requests from SALBA and other industry bodies.

 

The Spirits Interest Group championed the request to allow for flavoured Vodka. This amendment now also includes provision for flavoured gin as well.

The Wine Interest Group requested that the regulations make provision for spirit-barrel-aged-wine which you will see is included in the latest amendments.

The regulations also seek to provide rules for the use of words such as gluten, sulphites, lower in alcohol etc.
