This is an unprecedented opportunity to taste a singular Spirit distilled from UK red wood ants, and you should do it.

Cambridge Distillery was founded in 2011 by William and Lucy Lowe. Their stated objective was to "… capture the taste of the English seasons using botanicals grown in and around their home" in Cambridge, UK. And while there are many fine Gin products being produced these days, the laser-like focus of Cambridge Distillery is on ultra-premium Spirit production using extreme precision and some of the finest ingredients possible. Their showroom distillery looks more like a laboratory with beakers and equipment to test every step in the process and has earned them the distinction of "Most Innovative Distillery in the World" three times over, among other notable awards and distinctions.

William and Lucy Lowe partnered with the Nordic Food Lab to create a distilled Spirit from red wood ants collected from forests around the southern UK. This rare and exotic distillate is one of the infusions in their award-winning Cambridge Distillery Anty Gin — it is a tasty and innovative experience as it is. But you can sample the red wood ant distillate all by itself to isolate the flavor profile for yourself.

Smartass Corner: 
The Nordic Food Lab is a project to discover and experiment with alternative food and flavoring sources. A few years ago they conducted a multi-year effort in "insect gastronomy" to familiarize the world with insect-sourced ingredients.
