In April 2021 the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) sued Vancouver Island’s award-winning Macaloney’s Caledonian distillery. There has been a public outcry and tremendous media support globally and people have been speaking out and defending Macaloney to the SWA.
In response to the many letters of support for Macaloney that the SWA received, the SWA wrote back and claimed to be open to negotiation. However, the SWA’s lawyers have offered zero suggestions for compromise. This directly negates what the SWA claimed.
