Anty Gin just might make your skin crawl. This joint venture between Nordic Food Lab in Copenhagen and the world’s first ever gin tailor, The Cambridge Distillery, is a gin created using an incredibly unique ingredient.
The clear bottles and graphics give the illusion that it simply fades from clear to an opaque black, but upon closer inspection you can see illustrations of individual ants crawling up the bottles. As a lab that conducts experiments, the labels appear to have been written and pasted on the bottle in a laboratory, designating the batch number and alcohol content. The Anty Gin name stands out at the top of the bottle in a crisp, modern black font, and from afar it could look like any average gin on the shelf. It’s when you look closer that you realize there is a rich story behind the spirit.
