This study aims to describe the reasons alcoholic beverage products belonging to foreign countries can be registered in the Geographical Indications protection regime in Indonesia. Then it outlines the legal implications of protecting foreign alcoholic beverage products in the Geographical Indication protection regime. This research is a normative legal research which is strengthened by interviews. The results of the study show that the protection of foreign alcoholic beverages in the national GI regime is caused by 2 factors including: a. Disharmony between Law 20/2016 and Permenkumham Number 12 Year 2019, and b. The GI regime gives each member country the freedom to apply the GI provisions in accordance with their national interests. Furthermore, the implications for the protection of foreign alcoholic beverage products in the GI protection regime in Indonesia, besides showing the inconsistency of GI protection arrangements for alcoholic beverage products, also injure the sense of justice for traditional alcoholic beverage activists who want their traditional knowledge products to be protected through the GI regime.
