A spot check of imported alcohol samples conducted in four cities found that nearly 60 percent of them were counterfeit, Xinhua news agency reported today, citing the State Administration for Industry and Commerce.
The administration inspected the quality of several imported alcohols, including Remy Martin, Hennessy and Martell, in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Hangzhou. …
An official of the administration said they mainly inspected brands that were most likely to be counterfeit, so the results of the spot check may not be a true reflection of the overall situation of the four cities.
Thank God Shanghai wasn’t included in this survey. That means all of our alcohol is surely authentic!
