Thanks for your reply Alex. The reason I asked is that I am looking to do something similar. 'Drinks by the Dram' re-bottle in 3cl containers, they have their 'Drinks by the Dram' logo with, for example 'Warners Edwards Victoria's Rhubarb Gin', on the label. That's the distiller 'Warner Edwards' and the product 'Victoria's Rhubarb Gin' which is specific to Warner Edwards. The Warner Edwards brand/logo is not shown.
We want to do the exact same thing, but in 10cl bottles.
It's hard to believe that they have permission from all of the distillers that they bottle from - there are hundreds, but they do list some of them in their legal page, is this a way around it? This is the relevant bits from their page...
PRODUCTS WE MAKE
We manufacture drams, tasting sets, spirit-filled advent calendars and crackers, among other products.
We use factual statements to describe the source of the whisky or other contents of those products. For example, if we bottled a delicious single cask distilled at the outstanding Glenfarclas distillery then we would say exactly that. In that instance we would not be asserting any ownership of, or other rights in, the trademark "Glenfarclas", which we do not own. The label describes the bottle we opened and decanted into drams, so a dram with "Glenfarclas 40" on it indicates that we opened up a sealed bottle of rich, dark, Christmassy Glenfarclas 40 Year Old and carefully decanted it into clean food-safe containers in a food-safe environment.
Any defects introduced by our manufacturing processes (bottling, re-bottling, dramming, labelling, waxing, etc) are not the responsibility of the third party which produces any whisky (or other raw material) which we have used.
