Anty gin, which is literally made with ants as a botanical, started as an idea from the Nordic Food Lab - an organisation run by Noma's Rene Redzepi and gastro-preneur Claus Meyer - and was brought to life by the Cambridge Distillery. This Anglo-Danish vegan nightmare contains the essence of precisely 62 ants, which add a citrus flavour to the gin and are used instead of the more traditional orange or lemon peel.
Although Anty gin is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the world's first gin made from ants, it is not the first time that ants have ever been distilled – centuries ago they were distilled to create formic acid, which is useful as a preservative and antibacterial agent.
Due to the labour-intensive production process this gin is made in very small batches, and we don't ant-icipate batch 007 hanging around for long.
