  1. proof spirit

    Proof spirit is a standard measure of the alcohol content or strength of an alcoholic beverage, historically used in the United Kingdom and the United States. Traditionally, proof spirit is defined as a liquor that is half as much ethanol (by volume) as water, thus 100 proof. The modern definition in the United States is a bit different, now defined as twice the alcohol by volume (ABV) so a beverage that is 50% alcohol would be 100 proof.
