Methylethylketone separation from spirit?

    Hello. I need to make 100% pure ethanol solvent and unfortunately due to my country stupid so called alcohol "prohibition" politics any alcohol above 79% vol. requires special permission, only companies can buy and has ridiculous cost. I was lucky to find 99% ethanol with just added 1% methylethylketone in art store.

    Since methylethylketone boils at almost same temperature 80°C (78.37°C) distillation probably wouldn't work unlike for denatonium benzoate.

    Maybe chemists out here can suggest some other way to separate this nasty stuff?

    You can most certainly produce over 96% alcohol through distillation.
