A device is provided for recording the dispensing of a predetermined measure of a conductive fluid, e.g. water, alcoholic beverage, etc., from a container outlet. The device comprises an electrical signal generator for generating an electrical signal, e.g. a DC battery, and an electrical counting means disposed to receive this electrical signal. An electrical circuit is disposed to conduct the electrical signal from the generator to the counting means. The electrical circuit includes a switch means which is responsive to the contacting of the fluid from the outlet across a pair of electrical conductors within the outlet. When the fluid flows across the electrical conductors the electrical signal is transmitted to the counting means to record the dispensing of the predetermined measure of fluid.
