A British distiller has just launched the world's most expensive gin - with a 70cl bottle costing a staggering £2,000.
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.
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.
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.
