It can measure the following volume of drinks: 

1. Wine – 125ml, 175ml and 250ml

3. Spirits – 25ml, 35ml, 50ml

What is the UK alcohol unit guidance? 

To keep health risks from alcohol low, the UK Chief Medical Officers (CMOs) advice is, if you choose to drink, it is safest for both men and women to drink no more than 14 units a week, spread over three or more days with several drink-free days, and no bingeing.
