Angry Ant

This premium gin is a truly unique Australian gin and a tribute to Australia’s rich bio-diverse landscapes. With typical Australian origins, this gin is hand-crafted & hand-numbered.  It is made from classic Australian Shiraz spirit where the rich, ripe aromas of the Shiraz grape deliver a gin that is one of a kind. Inspired by the flora and fauna found in the Australian outback this gin has been triple distilled in small batches using an Alembic Pot Stil.

The botanicals, which were hand-picked at Wooleen Station, include Mulla Mulla and Purple Vetch flowers, native lemongrass, native sandalwood nuts, the currant bush; and, of course, the starring botanical, Australian ants!….Ants are highly social and communicate with pheromones, chemicals that convey specific messages, including colony identity and imminent danger. The chemical nature of these pheromones can be influenced by the ants’ diet.

All the plant-based botanicals collected are used to compliment the pheromones released by the ants during distillation to produce a truly unique Australian Gin known as Angry Ant Gin.

Professor Mark Elgar and his research group assisted Bass & Flinders in identifying the species of ant they have used for the first batch of Angry Ant Gin.
He is also helping them determine the chemistry of the pheromones captured in our distillation. This research may allow them to realise a number of different pheromone flavours for future gins.

Serve with tonic water and a slice of lemon.
