For those gin lovers of you out there, The Twin River Distillery has created the world’s strongest gin, with a whopping alcohol strength of 77%.
The distillery, based in Banchory, Aberdeenshire, have created a limited supply of 101 bottles with the launch taking place at the Gin Festival: North East.
The previous record that The Twin River folks have now beaten was believed to belong to a Swedish distillery sitting at 76%.
Funnily enough, Bombay Sapphire unwittingly took the title last May when a batch of its gin, usually weighing in at 40% ABV, was recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency after it was found to have an alcohol content by volume of 77%.
Ryan Rhodes, brand ambassador for Twin River said: “You have to appreciate that most gins are 40-50% ABV so care must be taken when drinking this spirit and a small amount definitely goes a long way.”
So, remember to drink in moderation people! Any gin lovers of you out there who might decide to get hold of a bottle?
