A British distiller has just launched the world's most expensive gin - with a 70cl bottle costing a staggering £2,000.<br />
<br />
Just six bottles of the prized spirit were made by Cambridge's Will Lowe after he found a way to capture the 'angel's share' - the minuscule amount lost to evaporation during distilling - of his premium Japanese Gin.<br />
<br />
Canny Will painstakingly collected just 15 millilitres of the evaporated gin from each distillation, around one per cent of the entire batch, until he had enough to fill six decanters.<br />
<br />
The 45 per cent ABV gin, called Watenshi, has just gone on sale at upmarket London store Selfridge's - and with its massive £2,000 price tag the exclusive tipple is more than four times the price of Dutch dry gin Nolet's Reserve, which at £450 a bottle was previously regarded as the world's most expensive gin.
