originally marketed as an ethanol based petrol additive, Spirytus Rektyfikowany is now sold at most liquor stores near section-8 housing. Superficially it resembles everclear, but the special distillation process imparts Spirytus Rektyfikowany with a unique taste. It can be drunk
straight or mixed at a 1:2 ratio with water to create vodka. Also known simply as "spiritus" and "spirutus" because the full translation is "ethanol based gasoline octane rectifier". According to the manufacturer "the name is not important. We have a very loyal customer base, and to them, what really matters is what's inside". However, critics have noted that every time the company has tried to shorten the neck of the bottle, sales have rapidly plummeted.
