World’s Strongest Gin Comes With a Beaker And Very Specific Mixing Instructions

Recommended Posts

UK-based Anno Distillers recently launched what it calls the “world’s strongest gin”, a spirit so string that it comes with a small beaker for precise dosing, as well as clear mixing instructions.


With a 95% ABV, the Anno Extreme 95 gin is definitely not meant to be enjoyed straight up, not unless you want to feel what it’s like to set your mouth on fire. Instead, its creators recommend it served as a “light G&T,” using only 5ml of spirit, tonic water and a slice of grapefruit as garnish.


To help you with those measurements, the new world’s strongest gin comes with a small measuring beaker.


Created using “a high degree of rectification and a gentle heat, combined with creative use of steeping and vapor infusion,” Anno Extreme 95 is not only extremely strong, but also  incredibly botanically rich, with notes of juniper, spice and liquorice coming through, if you can get past the 95% AVB.


Just a 5ml measure gives you a full flavored G&T with 75% less alcohol (versus a 50ml measure of 40% Alc/vol gin),” Anno Distillers wrote in a press release.


As some spirit enthusiast have pointed out, it seems a bit strange that a company create a product that at around 70 percent alcohol content would be classed as a hazardous liquid by most shipping companies, but maybe Anno Distillers just wanted to get their name out there, and going for a world record was the way to do it.


With my 65th birthday coming just a few days before the launch, it’s not only a fantastic way for me to celebrate such a big milestone, but it is also great to be flying the flag for both Kent and Great Britain, with a world record,” Anno Distillers co-founder, Andy Reason, told SpiritedZine.

Sounds like the ideal stuff for the posters asking whether they can smuggle booze into their ASQ hotel. At 5ml/drink, just a litre of the stuff would give you 13 drinks/day for your 15 nights of quarantine.

And that litre will cost you a mere £1500 ($2000).


Do you wish to continue with your order? 🙂
