When vodka is cheap – really, really cheap it probably isn’t vodka.

Made with chemicals used in anti-freeze, screenwash or nail polish remover, counterfeit booze can leave you blind, in a coma, or even dead.

Even if it’s dead cheap, your life shouldn’t be.

Don’t take a risk on fake alcohol.

The 4Ps

It’s important to know how to spot - and avoid - fake alcohol if you do come across it. Always remember the 4Ps:

Vodka is the most counterfeited spirit. Watch out for fake versions as well as brand names you have never heard of

If the price looks too good to be true, it probably is

Watch out for poor quality labelling including spelling mistakes and tampered bottles

Buy from a reputable Off licence premise

If you know someone selling fake booze, you probably know the people who will buy it.

Made with chemicals used in anti-freeze, screenwash or nail polish remover, counterfeit booze can leave you blind, in a coma, or even dead.

Don’t let them take the risk. Call 0300 123 6262 in confidence to report fake alcohol sales or use our contact form below.
