The following information is from the foodmanufacturing.com on May 24, 2113.

Investigators in New Jersey collected 1,000 open bottles of vodka, gin, rum, scotch, whiskey and tequila from the wells of the bars because the restaurants were accused of substituting cheap booze or worse for the good stuff while charging premium prices. One bar has a mixture that included rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring was sold as scotch and in another, premium liquor bottles were refilled with dirty water. "In January and February, investigators went to 63 establishments they suspected were scamming liquor customers. They ordered drinks neat that is, without ice or mixers and then covertly took samples for testing. Of 150 samples collected, 30 were not the brand as which they were being sold."
