Gin drinkers, beware! The LCBO is recalling Bombay Sapphire brand London Dry Gin due to high alcohol content.

How high? Almost double.

According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the recall was initiated after the discovery that, during production, one batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40% alcohol content by volume. The affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77%.

Consumers are warned not to consume the recalled product described.

In March, a similar recall was made for Georgian Bay Vodka due to double alcohol content as well.
