TIP

You think someone is secretly drinking your gin.  Instead of marking the bottle in the usual manner (which is very obvious and the bottle can be 'topped up' with water);  turn the bottle upside down and mark the level of liquid this way. 

If you forgot to ensure the top was securely on; go to my page on how to remove stains!
