HC Deb 08 March 1983 vol 38 c343W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will seek to amend paragraph 1, schedule 7 to the Finance Act 1969, so that the addition of herbs in the blending of whisky does not put the resultant drink outside the legal definition of whisky.

Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

No. I do not accept that a compounded spirit can properly be described as whisky.
