A gin company have created the worlds strongest gin, coming in at a whopping 95% abv.
After this year, we might just need something this strong to help us forget about the ups and down!
Luckily, it’s been released just in time for Christmas.
The Anno Extreme 95 Gin was created by scientist who quit their jobs almost 10 years ago and turned to creating booze for a living.
Anno Extreme 95 surprisingly has tasty flavour of fennel, coriander, nutmeg and liquorice.
According to the tasting notes it has ‘robust juniper and smooth spices’ that ‘soften into a fresh bite of citrus with sweet herbal notes’.
There is also a ‘long, dry and complex’ finish with ‘hints of warm liquorice’.
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.”
And the best thing about it is that it’s economical. A normal G&T will have either a single (25ml) or double (50ml) shot of gin, to get the full G&T experience with this gin you only need 5ml.
That gives you a gull-flavoured G&T with 75% less alcohol.
But if you can handle a full 25ml shot, you’ll get a ‘huge botanical hit with a higher strength’.
Before this, a Swedish company, Strane Ultra Uncut held the title of world’s strongest gin with 82% abv.
The gin was released in 2018, at the time, the company said: “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.”

Asda is now selling ‘Nutella’ flavoured KitKats and they’re the ultimate snack
Take my money!
Sounds like taking a break just got a hell of a lot more delicious.
Nestle, the brand behind KitKat, have now combined the popular chocolate biscuit with hazelnut spread to create the ultimate choccy biccy.
It’s not actually Nutella, but instead, a chocolate hazelnut spread that tastes just like it.
Kevssnackreviews posted the news over on Instagram, just a month after the recent launch of KitKat honeycomb flavour.
The bars consist of chocolate covered wafer biscuit fingers with a good layer of chocolate hazelnut spread in the middle too!
Amy Bennett-Inge, assistant brand manager for KitKat, said: “We’ve experienced huge demand for our two-finger KitKats this year and we know that fans love to try new flavours from the brand.
“We think our honeycomb and chocolate hazelnut spread varieties really hit the spot, and we’re sure they’ll become popular new additions to the range.”
The KitKat bars are now available at Asda in packs of nine and will set you back £1.50.
Lindt is now doing Candy Cane Lindor Truffles and they’re the perfect Christmas treat
These look amazing.
Lindt is combining its succulent white chocolate Lindor range with Candy Cane truffles for the perfect festive treat.
The indulgent treats are a brand new flavour for the UK and are absolutely perfect for Christmas.
Combining deliciously smooth white Lindt chocolate with peppermint candy cane pieces and an oozy truffle centre.
Kevssnackreviews shared the new flavour on Instagram with the caption: “There’s crunchy candy cane pieces in the shell atop the classic smooth filling, it’s nicely minty but the white chocolate tempers the flavour so it’s not too overpowering.
“The chocolate melts in the mouth nicely leaving little crunchy candy cane pieces.”
The treats are available for £5.99 on GBGifts.co.uk but boxes are already selling fast so you’ll have to be quick!
You can also get the truffles on Amazon but they come with a heftier price tag of £22.99, as the truffles come from America.
In other white chocolate news, you can now buy a white choc flavoured liqueur from Aldi that tastes just like a boozy Milkybar.
The boozy treat, described as ‘a light yet luxurious cream liqueur with the classic flavour of cocoa butter and cream’, is part of their festive range and will set you back £6.99.
