Someone's going to be in trouble for this one.

A consumer in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, who bought Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin didn't have good things to say about it. According to an LCBO spokeswoman, the booze “did not meet the expectations.” And it's no wonder.

It turned out that the bottle contained almost twice the amount of alcohol it was supposed to. Yikes!

Needless to say, the Ontario Liquor Control Board issued a massive recall on the gin. 6,000 bottles shipped across multiple provinces have already been identified as the problem, but over 1,000 have still be unaccounted for in Ontario.

"One batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40 per cent alcohol content by volume. As a result, the affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77 percent," the Liquor Control Board said in a statement to the public.

It is believed that the affected 1.14 litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin were shipped only to LCBO location in Canada, including the provinces of Ontario, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Manitoba, Alberta, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.


But you're probably wondering, is it actually a bad thing? Somewhere, somebody is having a really great time. Why spoil it? Well...
