What is an imitation?
An imitation is a spirit produced in a distillery, licensed by the General Chemical State Laboratory, with legal and controlled alcohol. It is referred to as whiskey "type", gin "type", tequila "type", etc. and sold in packages of 3 and 5 liters. Very often, these spirits are used to re-fill branded bottles in low budget tourist areas.
 
These spirits are not dangerous for health, since they are produced from legal alcohol, but are inferior in taste and quality to the original ones.
 
The consumer is obviously deceived but at least his health is not put at risk. They can obviously be characterized as “meths”, but in fact, they are not. However, if controlled, they will be qualified as "non-conforming" samples.
