This Gin is a blast of innovation on the nose and a zesty classic Dry Gin on the palate.

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.

We’ve been in the quality Spirits business a long time and we’ve seen the word "unique" tossed about quite a bit over the years. Sometimes it applies, sometimes not so much. But Cambridge Distillery Anty Gin has got to be not just the most unique Gin we’ve tasted this year, it might be this year’s most unique Spirit… period. You may already know that the folks at Cambridge Distillery create their craft Gins using local botanicals. But William and Lucy Lowe partnered with the Nordic Food Lab to infuse a classic Gin formulation with six thousand red wood ants… harvested locally of course. Evidently, these insects bring a sharp citrus bite. Once the shock of that clears your head you will want to know that the other botanicals include juniper, wild wood avens (colewort), Alexander seeds, and nettle. Upon release it was dubbed "World’s Most Innovative Alcohol."

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.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The ant influence reveals itself first and foremost on the nose with an aroma we’ve never sampled before — it’s like a floral hot sauce with notes of jasmine, lemon zest, white vinegar, and resin.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile reflects a more traditional Dry Gin with ethereal juniper, a healthy dose of lemon and lime peels, a light spice, and an earthy quality.

Finish
The finish is brisk and clean with a lingering lemon blossom note.

What does Cambridge Distillery Anty Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Cambridge Distillery Anty Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
The Cambridge Distillery is the smallest in Britain.
