    45% of liquor consumed in this country is illicit hooch made by Moonshiners with political patronage. Every time excise tax on liquor is increased more hoochers turn to kasippu and other illicit hooch. What is interesting is the presence of Policemen at this hooch party. May be free booze. via DM iPad app

    THIS MUST BE DUE TO HIGHLY POISONOUS METHANOL CALLED METHYL ALCOHOL, PROPANOL OR SOME OTHER STRONG RUBBER SOLVENT LIKE KETONES. THESE HAVE SIMILAR SMELL LIKE NORMAL ALCOHOL , ETHANOL.
