Could Your Favorite Whiskey Be a Rebottled Fake?

Bourbon is more popular than ever with collectors and consumers, but experts say counterfeiters are cashing in on the popularity by selling bootleg bourbon. Experts say counterfeiters have taken empty bottles of high-end bourbon, filled them up with cheaper whiskey and then resold them for huge profits. Inside Edition went to Acker, America’s oldest wine shop, where they were shown a bottle selling for nearly $3,000, and assured of it’s authenticity. But upon further inspection, something was off.

  • Sadly it’s not just fake bourbon that can be sold online . fake Gin, Vodka, Tequila, Even high proof spirits like Brandy, Cognac, and Absinthe can be faked online for a scalpers profit.

  • Is there anyway that you could help in bringing awareness in the hurtful use of the "R" word. I see it used all the time in youtube and movies. I have a daughter with special needs and it kills me everytime I hear it spoken. I think if we could educate people on how hurtful and derogatory it is to someone who cant speak up for themselves, people would think twice about using the word. Some don't have have a voice but it still hurts and its downright degrading

  • There is a law here in which all bars and any other place where alcohol is served have to smash their empty bottles. But there is simply no way to oversee what individuals do with them.

  • Lol if someone sold me a fake bottle they'd be hearing a nice dispute credit from my card company. Psa for everyone use your credit card or use PayPal if you use PayPal you can get your money back 100 percent guaranteed if you have proof they sold you a counterfeit same with a dispute charge back or stop payment from card companies like Mastercard and visa

  • That wasn't exactly an investigative reporter to ask the shop owner if the bourbon was the real deal w/o asking him how he knew this for certain. I mean, that's the only way the reporter could have suspected whether or not the shop owner was knowingly being deceptive.

  • What I learned is there's no point in buying any high price whiskey or rum because there's more fakes then the real thing on the market

    • Furthermore, even the distiller couldn't say with certainty that it was a fake. You would think that with one sip, he could say it's definitely not the real product. So that tells me that a decent $50 bourbon of the same proof and similar mash bill (recipe) is close enough in taste to a $1,000 bourbon to fool the distiller.
