Customs seizes counterfeit ‘vodka’
Gardai and customs find hazardous fake spirit that was set to make its way into the public domain
9 October 2008
Gardaí and customs officers from Dublin Port removed
that they believed was for the purpose of making counterfeit vodka, from an inner city location early last month.
The authorities said the alcohol could potentially have made up to 4,500 litres of fake vodka, and would have posed a serious health hazard if consumed. They estimated that the operation could have resulted in an ongoing loss of €600,000 per annum in revenue.
