Alcoholic beverages - drinks containing ethanol (ethyl alcohol, alcohol). The concept of “alcoholic (alcoholic) products” is used in commodity science and in determining taxes and excise taxes on goods.

Counterfeit (English counterfeit - fake) - a new product created on the basis of an existing original with a violation of intellectual rights; counterfeit consumer goods.
