Gem Clear is a brand of neutral grain spirit that is available at 95% alcohol by volume (190 proof), in contrast to hard liquors such as rum and vodka, which typically contain 40%–60% ABV (80–120 proof).
Since 95.6% alcohol and 4.4% water form an azeotrope (meaning that simple distillation cannot remove any of the remaining water), 191-proof spirits are the maximum proof that is available from the distilled beverage industry. Because Gem Clear is a neutral grain spirit, it is relatively low in congeners.
Gem Clear is bottled by the Quality Control Distilling Co. in Bardstown, Kentucky.
