What is the correct EU-INCI for Alcohol with Bitrex? Alcohol denat. or Alcohol, Denatonium Benzoate , or just Alcohol?

    Alcohol, Denatonium Benzoate.  You may list the latter way down in the order, just as long as it is there.

    actually, thinking about it, unless it's the standard formula for denatured alcohol as prescribed in Regulation 162/2013 (3% v/v isopropyl alcohol, 3% v/v methyl ethyl ketone, 0.001% w/v Bitrex, alcohol to 100%) it won't be regarded as denatured alcohol, and you'll have to pay spirit duty on it

    Thanks @Bill_Toge, I have the feeling many raw material suppliers are ignoring this, especially when it comes to mixtures or extracts containing alcohol, or are they all using "duty-spirit" ?
