A company has launched the world's strongest gin, which is a whopping 95 percent alcohol by volume.
Just in time to make its way onto your Christmas list for Santa, the Anno Extreme 95 Gin was created by a couple of scientists, who packed in their jobs almost a decade ago and set about making spirits instead. Smart move, guys.
The Kent-based company says: "Developed by scientists with a taste for adventure and pushing the limits of possibility, Anno Extreme 95 Gin was produced with one goal in mind - to create 'the spirit of alchemy'.
"A gin that packs more punch and flavour, drop for drop, than any other spirit in the world.
"We use an extended distillation with a mix of steeped and vapour infused botanicals to extract huge flavour, packed into a 20cl bottle.
"Just a 5ml measure gives you a full flavoured G&T with 75 percent less alcohol.
"Alternatively, a 25ml serve gives you a huge botanical hit with a higher strength."
The gin has a bunch of botanicals contributing towards its flavour, including fennel, coriander, nutmeg and liquorice.
According to the gin's tasting notes, it has 'robust juniper and smooth spices' that 'soften into a fresh bite of citrus with sweet herbal notes' - while its finish is 'long, dry and complex with hints of warm liquorice'.
Sounds good to me.

Before Anno Extreme 95 Gin came along, a Swedish company held the title of world's strongest gin with their 82.5 percent offering.
Strane Ultra Uncut was released in 2018, with the company saying at the time: "With Strane Ultra Uncut 82.5 percent, [brewer] Pär Caldenby has deliberately tweaked the production process to take the intensity and strength to a new level.
"This was done with a much stronger charge of the still than usual and also by doubling the amount of botanicals, for massive flavour.
"Exercising due care, it can be savoured neat and ideally well chilled, in very small sips (with a glass of water on the side), which delivers an intensive juniper-led flavour impact, with great complexity from the other botanicals, including coriander seeds, almonds, liquorice root, lime and fresh herbs."
Does anyone else really fancy a gin and tonic right now?
