## Is 200 proof the same as 100%?

## Why is it called 200 proof?

The term “proof” originated in 16th-century England, when spirits were taxed at different rates depending on their alcohol content. In order to avoid paying the highest rate, distillers would sometimes test their products by pouring a small amount on gunpowder and igniting it. If the gunpowder flashed, the distillate was “proof” that it was strong enough to be taxed at the higher rate.

The term “200 proof” means that the alcohol is 100% pure and would therefore be able to Ignite gunpowder.

## Does higher proof get you drunk faster?

Higher proof alcohol will get you drunk faster.

## Will 42 proof get you drunk?
