What is alcohol denat?

Under Customs & Excise Law, where alcohol is used in cosmetics which could in theory be drunk, then it has to be treated with a bitter tasting substance to render it unpalatable. When this treatment has been carried out then it is called Alcohol denat. The physical properties of the alcohol are not changed during this process.
