First of its kind alcohol-free 'halal whisky', is out on sale heralding the party season.

ArKay, the world's first alcohol-free whisky, will be sold worldwide from Dec 1, and is said to look and taste just like traditional whisky.

It has been declared as Halal certified, which opens up the markets in Muslim countries and the Middle East.

Whisky distillers in Scotland are said to be in a state of revolt over the 'alcohol free' creation.

"It is not possible to make alcohol-free whisky," the Daily Mail quoted a spokesman for the Scotch Whisky Association as saying.

"This company is trying to exploit whisky's reputation with highly irresponsible marketing," the spokesman added.

A Florida-based company called Scottish Spirits Ltd manufactures the non-alcoholic whisky in its Panama factories, and will be priced at 10 pounds a bottle and 4 pounds for a can.

Announcement: IFANCA has NOT certified ArKay Beverages Wednesday, November 9, 2011 This week, ArKay Beverages launched a Non-Alcoholic Whiskey product. They claim to have received IFANCA’s halal certification. This claim is completely untrue. ArKay Beverages did submit an application for review but were not issued a halal certificate because they refused to make the required product changes to meet IFANCA's halal certification standards. Instead, ArKay Beverages went ahead with a product launch without an IFANCA halal certificate. This announcement is to warn all halal consumers, retailers and distributors. As with any company making halal claims, it is every person's right to ask ArKay Beverages to produce their halal certificate. Companies that cannot produce an authentic halal certificate cannot claim to have halal certification. Meanwhile, IFANCA is looking into legal recourse against ArKay Beverages' false halal claim. Halal consumers, as well as others, can email their questions to halal@ifanca.org. http://www.ifanca.org/news/?id=1236580
