Imagine going to your favorite restaurant and discovering they have been cheating you all along.
I hope those involved are dealt with harshly.

This is more than cheating, if isopropyl alcohol was found in the samples. I can't see how someone thought they could get away with it, as there are
many side effects associated with its consumption. I am curious if this was an outright act where they mixed it in to bottles, or perhaps they were
buying incorrectly distilled booze from bootleggers who didn't properly distil it, leaving only trace amounts.
In any case, there are major health implications.
The part where they found restaurants watering down, and/or selling pure water as booze... Doesn't surprise me. I've been to bars before and I drink
all my spirits mixed with water, so there's been times where I order, and I can barely taste the booze. Or, I'll buy a premium spirit which is
distilled 5-8 times. If you drink that neat, or mixed only with water, you can tell when a regular has been substituted.
Needless to say I've never gone back to the establishments where I taste something funny with their drinks...
The owners here are idiots, they saw green in a short term gain, not realizing the long term consequences will cost them far greater than what they
could have hoped to've made in the short term.
