On the FSAI's [url=https://www.fsai.ie/legislation/food_legislation/general_principles_of_food_law.html:1t1sfvjx]general principles page[/url:1t1sfvjx], it sets out what is and isn't food, legally speaking, and drink is included. The guidance document mentions mineral water at one point. Beer, cider and spirits are certainly within the remit of the FSAI: I don't know why they wouldn't be covered by this.

Irish craft cider pretty much does fit the artisan definition, doesn't it?

I would say so yes. Farmhouse is another separate and protected term but I didn't mention it as it would only apply to a few breweries like Kinnegar and Black Donkey perhaps and maybe even not then.

From a consumrer point over you would rapidly find out who was still using imported base malt

What about locally grown barley that is malted in the UK? It exists.

"still using" That reads like its a bad thing. Whats the issue using British & German malts? They're top drawer.
