There is a simple, safe way to test, which is somewhat reliable, and there is a completely reliable way, which is not so simple or safe.
The simple test it to take a small sample from the bottle and in a glass or saucer light it on fire. If the flame is blue, it’s ethanol, if you get a yellow flame, that means there is methanol. Even if you get a blue flame, there might still be trace amounts of methanol, but not enough to harm you (all spirits contain trace amounts of methanol).
The more accurate test requires a solution of sodium dichromate and sulfuric acid. It’s not easy to get sulfuric acid (which is dangerous stuff), and sodium dichromate powder is hazardous and can be carcinogenic. But mix 8 ml of sodium dichromate with 4 ml of sulfuric acid, and then put 10 drops of that in a small sample of the spirits (like in a test tube). DO NOT DRINK THIS. Gently smell the result - if it’s unpleasant or irritating that means methanol. If it’s pleasant and fruity, it’s ethanol.


The goverment should hand out testing kits to village shops etc.......

If a pedlar turns up in the village, quick test......... if it Is methanol, pour his stock over his head and spark up.
You missed out the most important bit - don't forget to rape him first.
 
To be fair to Gupta, in blackout Britain during WWII, Venus was often mistaken for a returning bomber's landing lights.
I assume that Flight Control would have twigged their mistake when the bomber hadn't landed after six months.
