Nye regler for fadlagering. Scotchwhisky.com er kommet i besiddelse af dokumenter der beskriver en tilføjelse til fadlagering fra Scotch Whisky Association.

‘The spirit must be matured in new oak casks and/or in oak casks which have only been used to mature wine (still or fortified) and/or beer/ale and/or spirits with the exception of:

    wine, beer/ale or spirits produced from, or made with, stone fruits
    beer/ale to which fruit, flavouring or sweetening has been added after fermentation
    spirits to which fruit, flavouring or sweetening has been added after distillation

and where such previous maturation is part of the traditional processes for those wines, beers/ales or spirits.
Regardless of the type of cask used, the resulting product must have the traditional colour, taste and aroma characteristics of Scotch Whisky.’

Dette betyder at der kan benyttes en række andre fade der før har indeholdt andet alkohol, f.eks. mezcal og calvados osv.

I hvor stor omfang dette vil blive benyttet er ukendt.
