However, safeguarding these beverage’s safety, quality, and integrity is paramount.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is the apex body responsible for regulating the production and sale of alcoholic beverages in India. The FSSAI has established stringent regulations covering aspects such as composition, labeling, and packaging. The European Union (EU) and the United States (US) have robust regulatory frameworks to ensure consumer protection and responsible production and sale of alcoholic beverages.

To comply with these regulations and maintain the highest quality standards, alcoholic beverages must undergo a range of mandatory and optional analyses. Mandatory analyses include determining alcoholic content, compositional analysis, and contaminant analysis for heavy metals, pesticides, and microbiological contaminants. Optional analyses may consist of sensory, nutritional, shelf-life, and packaging analyses, depending on the market’s specific requirements.
