A high-proof gin from Sydney distillery Poor Toms, the Fool's Cut Gin (previously the Fool Strength) weighs in at 52%.
To sit alongside their extremely popular Sydney Dry Gin, the Marrickville-based operation have upped the juniper to balance out the higher alcohol.
The grapefruit sweetnes is still there, with added licorice notes on the finish.
Powerful when mixed, works with dry martinis and G&Ts. In the distillers own words: "Garnish with anything - this gin can handle it."
The label is just as entertaining, and decidely Sydney, as their standard expression.
