Successful outcome at the European Court of Justice

We are delighted to report the successful outcome for Bruichladdich at the European Court of Justice, following a challenge to the trade mark registration of PORT CHARLOTTE by the Instituto dos Vinhos e do Porto, regarding the inclusion of the word ‘Port’ in the trade mark. 

The full decision can be found here: 


The Court considered that the trade mark PORT CHARLOTTE did not evoke the products protected under the Protected Designation of Origin and there were not enough facts to show that PORT CHARLOTTE derives any unfair advantage from the Protected Designation.  This upholds successful decisions that we obtained on behalf of Bruichladdich at the EUIPO.
