    Default Alcohol and proof

    I have never gotten the whole "proof" thing when it comes to booze. However, I was under the impression that Everclear had the highest proof on the market. I don't pay attention much to anything we don't sell, but now and then I go through the newest book to see if there are any cool promotional items (they are free and all it takes is a different order number)...you know, like when you see glasses in a gift pack...that sort of thing.

    anyway, I happened to be perusing the new book over coffee this morning and lo and behold....



    190 proof????

    the first number is the proof, then ml, then bottles in case, then base price, then our price, then store price, then the minimum amount a store may sell for....they recently allowed stores to price up,..it used to be a price set by law...no variance for a store. We never do the "happy hour" thing because the laws are so strict on the prices we can charge...even what we display in the bar is regulated.

    Everclear is 190 proof, or 95% alcohol in ohio, In Michigan it is 150 proof, or 75% do to that being the highest alcohol content allowed to be sold in Michigan.

    Evidently not, since I can buy the 190 proof Clear Spring Alcohol? I was under the same impression though. That listing is from my Liquor Control Commission catalog for the State of Michigan licensees

    Well, I'd say any law against it has changed...this book is from the State LCC and only covers Michigan.

    it is dated July 31, 2011-October 29,2011
