Methylated spirits. Labelled bottle of methylated spirits containing ethanol (alcohol) that has been mixed with additives to make it undrinkable. Here, pyridine (providing an unpleasant smell) has been added, along with a purple dye and methanol. This allows the alcohol to be sold in large and concentrated quantities for non-drinking uses, including as a household cleaning agent, a solvent, and a fuel.
