Trading Standards reports more fake Glen's vodka

04 April, 2008

More counterfeit Glen's vodka has emerged in the north west, several weeks after Trading Standards officers warned that the fake spirit had been found on sale in 29 areas across England, Wales and Scotland.

The bottles were discovered in Leigh, Lancs, after a member of the public complained about a strange taste.

Trading Standards seized a small number of bottles from the off-licence which made the sale.

Genuine Glen's vodka 70cl bottles can be identified by a small AGC logo around the base of the bottle. The counterfeit bottles also misspell Ayrshire without the letter "i".

The fakes have the following codes embossed in the glass: SE607 700ml 66mm, 8509 700ml 66mm, 7828 700ml 66mm.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
