And letter came down a week later asked my director and me (manager) to interview on 19/12/2019
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
There are around 2-3% below the standard strength.

Hi,

I assume that this is PACE Interview. You would be permitted to take a Solicitor or other legal representative.

The purpose of the interview would.be to establish where you purchased the items from and how long you have been supplying them to members of the public.

I would strongly suggest that you take a legal representative with you.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks

Thank you!
The reason why the alcohol strength lower than bottle labelled,because once I refill use new smaller size bottle, I always think there is small amount in the bottom of bottle, I try to stop wasting and used small amount of water to rinse bottle and mixed into the spirit . How stupid I am !
