There are many lists of kosher alcoholic beverages. When I walk into a random liqueur store, there is no way to know if any of the previous owners of the drinks were non religious jews. Being that alcoholic beverages are stored for a very long time, why don't I have to afraid that perhaps a non religious jew owned the drinks over Pesach?

    Seems like a pretty farfetched concern. Maybe a non-Jew snuck into the store and injected pig juice in through the cork? There's always fantastical scenarios that are technically possible. – Double AA Jul 10 '17 at 19:00
  • @DoubleAA farfetched… unless you know a distributor or the storeowner or the manufacturer is Jewish. – msh210 Jul 11 '17 at 17:03

    @msh210 If you know the store owner or manufacturer is Jewish then there's also no Safek since it's definitely prohibited. – Double AA Jul 11 '17 at 17:07
  • @DoubleAA, ? Depends when it was there. – msh210 Jul 11 '17 at 17:08
  • @msh210 Sure, but then you are potentially looking at his inventory flow to see if it's possibly permitted. This is simply not the case the OP was asking about. – Double AA Jul 11 '17 at 17:10
