Recently, on the Internet and beyond, you can find many offers for the sale of elite vodka (such as Finlandia, Absolut, Jelzin) in tetrapacks. Needless to say, the price of these drinks is suspiciously attractive. Is this true or another manipulation by unscrupulous sellers? It should be mentioned that such cases do not happen for the first time, and almost every time the amount of vodka in tetrapacks is noticeable
Recently, on the Internet and not only, you can find many offers for the sale of elite vodka (such as Finlandia, Absolut, Jelzin) in tetrapacks . Needless to say, the price of these drinks is suspiciously attractive.
Sellers of such vodka explain its packaging and price as follows:
This vodka is from DutyFree.
This vodka is confiscated.
This vodka is a cocktail option for bars.
Is this true or another manipulation by unscrupulous sellers? It should be noted that such cases are not the first time.
In 2013, an underground shop producing counterfeit vodka was exposed in the Chernivtsi region. They sold their product under the guise of the elite French brand Jelzin. Alcohol for vodka was transported through established channels from Europe beyond customs control. And the surrogate was already sold over the Internet as an elite drink.
In 2016, the law enforcement officers closed another underground workshop for the production of counterfeit alcohol . During the searches, law enforcement officers confiscated thousands of liters of counterfeit alcohol products of well-known brands: Finlandia, Absolut, Jelzin, . In addition to the very fact of counterfeiting of elite brands, the most dangerous is the fact that alcohol was produced according to unknown standards in unsanitary conditions, and then the drink was simply bottled in tetrapacks with the brand and marking of well-known manufacturers: Finlandia, Absolut, Jelzin, Gray Goose and Courvoisier, which also can be found for sale online.
And with these two cases, the history of counterfeiting of famous brands, unfortunately, does not end. So even now the situation has not changed. Vodka , which is sold in tetrapacks , is 100% fake , it is produced in different parts of our country and not only in our country, it is good, if at least the minimum norms and rules are observed.
Sellers of counterfeit alcohol are especially active during the holidays, as the demand for drinks, particularly in large volumes, increases. Everyone wants to buy alcohol , often elite (a big holiday anyway), and they are often tempted by an attractive price, forgetting about safety and quality control.
Companies producing elite types of vodka care about the reputation and quality of their products and are always ready to answer your questions about their products.
After contacting the official representatives of the Finlandia brand regarding vodka in tetrapacks, we received the following response:
“Thank you for your letter to Finlandia. We appreciate your concern about the quality of our products. Protecting consumers and preserving the reputation of our brand is very important to us, so every incident of counterfeiting is taken very seriously. We work with law enforcement and regulatory agencies to combat counterfeiting and illegal use of our brand by other manufacturers.
The product you are asking about is a fake , as we do not sell Finlandia in tetrapacks (bag-in-boxes). The best way for users to avoid buying a counterfeit product is to buy the drink from a trusted store.
No matter how much you want to save (this is especially true during the holidays, when expenses are quite high), you should remember that the consequences of consuming low-quality alcohol can be serious. After all, you won't guess what exactly is in your tetrapak : if you are lucky, you will be disappointed with the taste of the drink and wake up with a slightly stronger headache in the morning than usual. Or will you come across vodka , made from low-quality and dangerous ingredients, bypassing all standards, the consumption of which, even in a very small amount, can cause serious intoxication of the body and health problems for a lifetime. It is not for nothing that they say that free cheese can only be found in the mousetrap. You should be very careful and buy alcoholin the usual container, with excise stamps and preferably from verified suppliers. It is better to drink less, but be sure of the quality of the product.
