Everclear is a brand name of rectified spirit sold by American spirits company Luxco.[1] It is bottled at 151-proof (75.5% ABV) and 190-proof (95% ABV).[2] Sale of the latter is prohibited in many U.S. states (California, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, New York, Virginia and Washington).[3]

Alcohol content[edit]

Due to the azeotropic effects visible in the distillation process, water and ethanol cannot be separated by ordinary distillation when the ratio of ethanol to water is greater than approximately 95:5. Therefore, the highest concentration of ethanol generally available for human consumption is 190 proof.
