You can also use the Whonix VMs. There are two Debian VMs in VirtualBox.
One serves as a Tor gateway (with multiple app-specific SocksPorts, not
just TransPort). The workspace VM can only reach the Internet via Tor,
so nothing can leak. If the gateway VM is down or broken, the workspace
VM has no Internet access.

The Whonix wiki has tons of information about all of these issues.
