Gin Recalled After It Was Found To Be 77 Percent

The Canadian government were forced to recall bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin after inspectors discovered the alcohol content was nearly twice as high as advertised on the bottle.

A quality assurance team tested the sprit and found some bottles of the Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin, owned by Barcadi, contained 77 percent alcohol – much higher than the advertised 40 percent. Sidenote: How can I become an alcohol quality assurance tester?

Canadian officials urged anyone who had 1.14 litre bottles of the spirit not to drink it, but to return it where they would receive a refund.

As you can probably imagine, not everyone saw an issue with 77% alcohol gin.

Many people took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the subject:


Barcadi told CBC News: “We do not recommend consumption of this product,” adding that they believed only Canada was affected by the extra-boozy booze.

A statement from the Liquor Control Board of Ontario said: “The affected product has been removed from the shelves of all LCBO stores.

“This recall was initiated after an investigation by LCBO Quality Assurance revealed a deviation in the stated 40 percent alcohol content by volume. The affected lot L16304w has alcohol content by volume of 77 percent.”

They added that drinking a product with such a high level of alcohol could cause serious illness.
