Yes
You do know that distilling alcohol is illegal in the Uk, even for private consumption
Would that not burn your mouth out?

I suspect they are just planning on adding a flavouring to a base alcohol.
If you distilled a 150 proof alcohol you'd get something dangerous as you're talking about strengthening a 75% base.

OP there are a few sellers online and you should be able to find some overproof rum or vodka on the highstreet if you keep an eye out. They aren't cheap though as its a small market.

The issue in Ask is that, depressingly often, posters don't know what the real question is that they want answered and without asking for further info, those who wish to assist can't. Helpful people don't wish to encourage someone who may be on track to harm themself/others and/or commit an illegal act so they ask for further info. No-one can distinguish you from a rash idiot from your OP without more detail.

I wouldn't bother searching for expensive high volume alcohol, I'd just go straight for the white spirit.

Not that it's anyone's business, but I'm making a liquor which is 10% high volume alcohol. It's also a present, I'm not a drinker myself.
