It can be dangerous in any country, excessive consumption etc, supposedly approx 3 million people die directly from alcohol related issues every year, plus a casual factor in many more suicides, accidents or disease's, but probably higher chances of poor distillation methods & contamination in poorer area's without minimum standards of quality
Even having a legitimate looking bottle doesn't mean what's in the bottle is legitimate, just make sure the seal isn't tampered with, though very difficult to do In a bar/social event setting or poor quality moonshine, you could stick to spirits & just light a little bit & check for a blue flame & you'll be fine.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. - Macbeth
