Genuine Glen's Vodka 70cl can be easily identified. It comes in bottles supplied by Allied Glass Containers with a small AGC logo on the base.

The following information is also embossed in the glass around 5mm from the base: 70cl 58mm C12173.

Any bottle without this marking is counterfeit.

Counterfeit bottles found so far have the following codes embossed in the glass: SE607 700ml 66mm, 8509 700ml 66mm, 7828 700ml 66mm.

The front and back labels on the counterfeit bottles also appear to be self-adhesive as there is no visible glue pattern.

Genuine Glen's Vodka 70cl labels are applied by a labelling machine using a wet adhesive which produces a distinctive glue pattern on the back of the label (horizontal lines approximately 2mm apart).

Anyone who has purchased or been offered cheap Glen's Vodka should contact Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06.
