Default EUR: Montebello trademark battle won by rum company

The report below is just a stub. It's nice to see a small Rhum Agricole producer on Guadeloupe getting the better of it.

In a battle between two drinks companies with the same name, a Guadeloupe rum maker has won the right to trademark its moniker Montebello, fighting off a challenge from a namesake Spanish wine company.

This has been a long standing dispute for Montebello. I'm glad they are making progress.

Cavalier rum from Antigua has had a problem in the US because there is already a Cavalier Gin registered in the US.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
