A tube, made of glass or metal, which is normally bent at a peculiar angle to enable easier access to barrels in a dunnage rack. The thief is used to extract a bit of spirit from a bottle or oak barrel for periodic tasting. It works much like a pipette, with the user holding a thumb over one end to prevent any liquid from leaving the thief. Also known as a Whiskey Thief or Wine Thief.
