Public warned not to buy or drink illicit vodka

Archived news: published on Friday 25 Nov 2011 by Fife Council

Tests have revealed a number of problems with this product. The main concern is that bottles of Drop Vodka were found to contain Propan-2-ol (also known as isopropyl alcohol) at levels which present a health risk and other substances which may be potentially damaging to health. The tests also showed the alcohol content of the vodka to be well below that shown on the label. The bottles found so far are marked either ‘Bottled in France’ or ‘Bottled in Italy’ and lacked the manufacturer’s contact details.

If you suspect that you have bought illicit Drop Vodka, contact Fife Council Environmental Health on 01592 583228.
