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.
