77% Alcohol Gin Recalled

Pic cred: 20th Century Fox

A heap of gin has had to be recalled in Canada; because it had almost twice the alcohol volume it should of.

Some bottles of Bombay Saphire were as much as 77% alcohol, forcing authorities to recall them.

Canadians have been warned not to drink the gin, which is sold in a 1.14 litre bottles.

A statement from the Ontario Liquor Control Board says there was a problem in production.

"One batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40 percent alcohol content by volume. As a result, the affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77 percent," it said.

There have been no reports of illness or adverse effects, but at 77% people would likely get sloshed pretty fast.
