Real bang for the buck

Bottles of a popular gin have been recalled across Canada after a batch was found to contain nearly twice the amount of advertised alcohol.

Officials said the 1.14 litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin should have had 40% alcohol content by volume when the actual figure was 77%.

This is the bit that had me laughing:

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said the recalled gin should be thrown out or returned to the shop where it was bought.

I’d keep the bottle if I had bot one and am still alive. Will be valuable as a collectible.

But the Candy boys love over doing the strength.

It is the second time this year that Canada has had to recall a brand of liquor because the alcohol content was too high.

In March, bottles of Georgian Bay vodka were pulled from the shelves after inspectors found a batch with an alcohol content of 81% instead of the advertised 40%.
