A club in Geelong, Australia has been closed by police after it was discovered the bartenders were serving moonshine, not Smirnoff vodka as advertised.Link.
But what was wrong with the moonshine, according to the article? It contained ethanol
. And we're to assume that Smirnoff vodka contains... what exactly?
I'm assuming this was the journalist's fault for confusing methanol and ethanol. Methanol
is the blindness-inducing alcohol that is produced from poor distillation. Ethanol is drinking alcohol that everyone knows and loves. Huge difference.
