Pubs and shops have been warned of a potentially lethal bootleg booze scam in the run-up to Christmas.
Counterfeit spirits from Eastern Europe are being sold for a fraction of the normal cost, but laced with toxic levels of methanol - a chemical that can cause blindness and even death.
Kirov and Glen's vodka are among the spirits to be switched in the swindle, known as "tipping".
The International Federation of Spirits Producers said: "We urge licensees to resist bargain spirits from unknown sources."

Was happening in Kavos when I was there this summer. Cheap chemical booze so they can afford to let you drink all the vodka etc you want for 10 euros.
I can imagine the type of shops selling it though.
Wont stop people thinking though when they go in for their cheap vodka.
