sediment is due to bad distillation.
it should be clear.

if theres a risk of bad distillation theres a risk of poisoning.

My father actually has a few bottles, my grandfather used to sort him out with it when we used to go down to him. Used to be a clear liquid in an old school smirnoff bottle but after a, er, "accident" involving a 15 year old year me going knacker-drinking and mistaking it for vodka, he then got my grandfather to dye it red so I'd know not to touch it.
