The Welsh Government has welcomed the Supreme Court judgment that the proposed minimum price for alcohol in Scotland does not break European Union competition law.
The Health Secretary, Vaughan Gething, says he will now consider any detailed implications before pressing ahead with his Public Health (Minimum Price for Alcohol) Bill.
It is expected that he would use the power to set a minimum price similar to what is proposed in Scotland - fifty pence per unit.
A standard bottle of whisky would have to cost at least £14, so only the cheapest brands would be affected.
But, the Scotch Whisky Association challenged the law in Scotland.
The Supreme Court found that although minimum pricing will cause a 'minor distortion' of the market for alcohol, including European Union trade and competition, it was "impossible" to conclude that this should be regarded as outweighing the health benefits intended by minimum pricing.
The Court rejected the Scotch Whisky Association's argument that higher taxes would be a more appropriate response than minimum pricing.
It's taken five years from the Scottish Parliament passing the legislation for the Scottish Government to finally win the right to go ahead with minimum alcohol pricing.
