Beam Suntory Wins Another Round in Fighting Off Lawsuits Accusing its Classic Kentucky Bourbon Brands of False Advertising for Claiming Products are Handcrafted

Beam Suntory has won another round in fighting off lawsuits accusing its classic Kentucky bourbon brands of false advertising for claiming the products are handcrafted. In the company's latest victory, a federal judge in California dismissed a suit aimed at Jim Beam. Plaintiff Scott Welk said he was enticed into buying a bottle of Jim Beam's white label bourbon at a premium price due to the handcrafted claim on the label. The suit said the labeling boast enables Beam to sell bourbon at a higher price because consumers connect "handcrafted with high-end products. Welk claimed Jim Beam bourbon is actually made using a mechanized or automated process requiring little human involvement. His suit accused Beam of violating California's false advertising and unfair competition laws by intentionally misrepresenting consumers. He tried to pursue claims as a class-action suit. In a ruling earlier in San Diego, U.S. District Judge Larry Alan Burns said stills and other equipment have always been necessary to make bourbon. Two similar lawsuits against Maker's Mark bourbon, another Beam Suntory brand, were dismissed this year. Those suits - one in California, the other in Florida - took aim at bottle labeling promoting the bourbon as handmade. Maker's Mark bottles are known for their red-wax seal.
