Sir Robert Burnett is an asshole. On the front of this green, 750ml bottle of devil’s piss it reads, “This celebrated Gin is distilled according to the original formula of Sir Robert Burnett & Co. LTD……….In Baltimore Maryland. Ok, first, I’m going to call bullshit because as far as I was told London Dry Gin was supposed to be made in, oh I don’t know, maybe London.
Truth is I didn’t even read the label when I bought it. All I saw was a bottle of Gin that was $8.99. Yes, I know. That should have been my first clue that this little green bitch was going to kick my ass nine ways till Sunday later that night. What can I say? I’m a bargain hunter.
I went home and commenced to drinking. The stuff actually tastes pretty good. Smells good. Mixes good. So why is Sir Robert Burnett and asshole? This gin is the single worst headache producer known to man. If you buy a bottle of this you better have a few syringes full of morphine handy because about 3 hours after you have your last drink it’s going to feel like a ninja just hit you in the head with a Chinese star. And that’s just from having 3-4 drinks.
At first, I thought it was a fluke. So the next night I made myself only 2 drinks. Same result. Sunday night. One drink. Same result. So fuck you, Sir Robert Burnett. Stay as far away from this stuff as you can. I know I will.
