Alcohol content is often stated in 1 of 2 primary conventions: "% ABV" or "X Proof" where X is a value between 1 and 200. ABV stands for "Alcohol by Volume". "1 proof" is equivalent to 0.5% ABV. For example: "200 proof" is equivalent to "100% ABV", "190 proof" is equivalent to :95% ABV", "151 proof" is equivalent to "75.5% ABV".
