## How strong is 100 proof?

(Phew.) 3: In the United States, the system — established around 1848 — is a bit simpler: “Proof” is straight up two times alcohol by volume. So a vodka, say, that is 40 percent ABV is 80 proof and one that is 45 percent ABV is 90 proof. A “proof spirit” is 100 proof (50 percent ABV) or higher.

## What does proof mean for alcohol?

Answer: Proof is defined as twice the alcohol (ethanol) content by volume. For example, a whisky with 50% alcohol is 100-proof whiskey. Anything 120-proof would contain 60% alcohol, and 80-proof means 40% of the liquid is alcohol.
