PAR. 241. No lower rate or amount of duty shall be levied, collected and paid on brandy, spirits, and other spirituous beverages than that fixed by law for the description of first proof; but it shall be increased in proportion for any greater strength than the strength of first proof.

All imitations of brandy or spirits or wines imported by any names whatever shall be subject to the highest rate of duty provided for the genuine articles respectively intended to be represented, and in no case less than one dollar per gallon.

PAR. 244. (a) There shall be no constructive or other allowance for breakage, leakage, or damage on wines, liquors, cordials, or distilled spirits.

Note to Par. 244. (6) The importation of wines, together with assorted spirituous liquors in a case or package, is not prohibited, provided the package contains not less than one dozen bottles of liquor (T. D. 795).
