DISTILLED SPIRITS - PROOFING RESOURCES

Distilled spirits plant proprietors are required to determine taxes owed on spirits removed from their bonded premises. To do this, proprietors will need to "gauge" the spirits, that is, determine the quantity and proof of the spirits.

If you are a distilled spirits plant proprietor, it is important that you know how to proof your spirits correctly. Below you'll find some resources to help guide you through the proofing process.
