Polish vodka in demand as substitute disinfectant

TOKYO (Jiji Press) - A Polish vodka with high alcohol content, Spirytus Rektyfikowany, is in short supply in Japan at a time when alcohol disinfectants are selling out amid the spread of the new coronavirus.

The vodka is in high demand as an alternative to rubbing alcohol.

According to Tokyo-based Million Trading Co., which imports foreign alcoholic beverages, the polish vodka, with an alcohol content of 96%, is believed to be the strongest alcoholic drink in the world. It is used mainly for fruit cocktail and often served at bars.

The company’s shipments of Spirytus Rektyfikowany surged in the last one to two weeks, reaching a level more than twice the volume seen in normal years.
