Man sentenced for making vodka ‘for the lads’

And you might be inclined to believe the 62 year old man too untill you realise he had enough for 5000 bottles!

Revenue officials also found two industrial bulk containers, one full of 1,000 litres of neutral alcohol – 94.5% proof.

There was also a forklift, a machine for resealing bottle caps and a machine for making the caps.

Far cry from the old man you can imagine, skin on his fingers all but worn away, wearing tweed, 87% blind in both eyes huddled in a shed out the back arse of Connemara sampling his latest ‘batch’ of moonshine.

A forklift!

The haul would’ve come to the value of 66k and the judge saw the man as just the ‘bottle washer’ and let him off (in my opinion) with a 2 years suspended sentence! I really am in the wrong job…
