Talking Ancient Plant Medicine...and Gin

I listened to this podcast above where Gordon talks about drinking Gin on St.George Day and today I see this news story on the ABC news website -
Bombay Sapphire gin with 77 per cent alcohol recalled in Canada
"Thousands of bottles of gin have been recalled in Canada, after a customer discovered the alcohol content was almost double what was declared on the label.
The Liquor Control Board of Ontario issued a recall for 1.14-litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin after an investigation by its quality assurance revealed the bottles contained gin with 77 per cent alcohol by volume (ABV).
A standard bottle of Bombay Sapphire is only 40 per cent ABV.
Canada's National Post reported an unsatisfied customer had tipped off the liquor board after realising "the taste profile was off".
The Post said 6,000 bottles were affected.

Bombay Gin is actually my favourite brand of gin...but alas I don't own a current bottle.
And probably unlike Gordon, I like to drink mine straight;-)
