Officially the world's most innovative spirit: Cambridge Distillery's Anty Gin is the result of a collaboration with the visionary thinkers of the Nordic Food Lab, and is the very first gin in the world to be made from insects. Each bottle of Anty Gin contains the essence of approximately 62 red wood ants, along with hand-foraged botanicals including juniper, wild wood avens and nettle that complement the sharp citrus notes created by distilling the ants.
Every bottle of Anty Gin is labelled by hand on our Distillery's 1924 typewriter, demonstrating the attention to detail which led this gin to be named World's Most Innovative Alcohol in the 2015 World Beverage Innovation Awards. A 5cl dropper bottle of pure ant distillate is also provided for you to experience the unique flavour of the Formica rufa in isolation – or to intensify the citrus notes in an Anty Gin & Tonic.
Once braved, never forgotten: makes an exceptional gift for a rare spirits collector or bold gastronomic adventurer.
