A new tipple called 'Not Terry's' Chocolate Orange Gin Liqueur is now available to buy online and it sounds like a dream come true for chocoholics and alcoholics alike.

According to the product description the drink tastes just like "the eponymous chocolate orange", with some saying it is like "they liquefied the real thing".

"A chocolate orange that won't melt in your hands, is low in sugar and gets you drunk? Oh Willy Wonka, what will you think of next?"

The 20 percent ABV gin is available on UK shopping site Firebox for £29.99 (NZD$57.00) a bottle.

The site notes that the drink is also suitable for vegetarians, as its made with 100 percent cacao and natural botanicals.
