Distillery Touts Gin ‘Voted No. 1 By Rioters’ For ‘High Flammability’


A distillery in the U.K. was forced to apologize after mocking deadly riots sweeping the U.S. in a product promotion.

In a now-deleted social media post, Bristol Dry Gin Micro Distillery advertised a 150 proof gin by saying, “When the shooting starts the looting starts. Voted No. 1 gin by rioters for its complex botanical mix and high flammability.”

A photo in the post includes a flaming shot and bottles of gin with rags hanging from them to mimic Molotov cocktails.
