On the Nineteenth day of Christmas my wine rack gave to me an Angry Ant gin

This is a slightly different take on today’s advent wine – It’s an Angry Ant gin from Bass & Flinders distillery, located in Red Hill on the Mornington peninsula in Victoria Australia.

Don’t worry, it’s still in keeping with wine. The gin uses Shiraz grapes in its base. It also contains many botanical’s from outback WA, including Mulla Mulla and Purple Vetch flowers, native lemongrass, native sandalwood nuts, and the currant bush.

The most interesting and cool part about the Angry Ant gin is that it also includes ant pheromones!! These pheromones are what really determines the flavours of the gin. Essentially, the ant pheromones are influenced by diet, which the botanical’s are selected to match, and complement these unique pheromones.

While the Shiraz forms the base of this gin, there’s so many floral flavours that make this drink so interesting, and fun to consume.

Have on its own, or mix it up with a good tonic water and you’ll have your taste buds singing in no time!
