Re: Minimum pricing response

True but like smoking bans etc these things start smewhere and can gather momentum. I don't know what anyone else thinks but perhaps there is room for minimum standards in terms of grain quality, cask quality, maximum proportions of grain spirit etc (or am I going over torturous old ground here!) to ease out those horrendous ultra cheap whiskies that, lets be honest, tend to be seen in brown paper bags under park benches. I think I have to say I would support initiateves to set a floor, somehow, on the pricing of whiskey, which I imagine would drive the low price consumers to other spirits/drinks and protect the historically premium status of good whiskey, whether Scottish Single Malts or Blends, American Bourbon, Irish Pure Pot Still and Single Distillery whiskies, etc.
