I'm sure there is some pretty potent home-made specialties around (namely in my storeroom, oh, and that bottle of Absinthe I have that no-one has claimed---long story..) but here is an extract from our pal wiki:

"Everclear, a neutral grain spirit is sold at 190 proof in parts of the U.S. where it is legal. For comparison, absinthe (one of the highest-alcohol commercial liquors available) usually tops out at around 70% ABV and ranges from about 120 to 130 proof. Austrian Stroh 80 rum is an exception with a ABV of 80% (proof 160)."

Probably grain alcohol, also known as ethyl alcohol, pure grain alcohol and grain neutral spirits. Usually about 190 proof, or 95% alcohol.

As for bottled, legitimate, over the counter beverages, Bacardi 151 is still reigns supreme.

Strongest Commercial Alcoholic Drink
The strongest commercially available alcoholic drink dates from during the first half of the 20th century, when the Estonian Liquor Monopoly marketed a beverage that was distilled from potatoes. It was 196 proof (98% alcohol). Estonia is one of the Baltic states.

Everclear, which is bottled and over the counter, has more alcohol than 151.
