How to distinguish real alcohol from fake

Настоящий алкоголь или подделка

Alcohol (from Arabic. الكحل, al-kuħl - “antimony”, through Latin. Alcohol, in medieval Latin, this word means all sublimation products) - in Russian, most often acts as a synonym for phrases ethyl alcohol (ethanol) and alcoholic beverages ( that is, beverages containing ethyl alcohol in significant concentrations).

Alcoholic beverages - beverages containing ethanol (ethyl alcohol, alcohol). The concept of "alcohol (alcohol) products" is used in merchandising and in determining taxes and excise taxes on goods.

Counterfeit (eng. Counterfeit - fake) - a new product created on the basis of the existing original in violation of intellectual rights; falsified consumer goods.

The most useful information in the world around us is how not to buy a fake. Unbelievably useful and more than once saved me when choosing gifts for a chef or friend.
