World’s Most Expensive Gin At Selfridges Birmingham

World’s Most Expensive Gin At Selfridges Birmingham

The world’s moste expensive gin has gone on sale at Selfridges Birmingham, but only few lucky buyer will be able to get their hands on the bottle since just six bottles the store has in stock. The Cambridge Distillery’s Japanese style gin named Watenshi, the “Japanese Angel” costs a whopping £2,000 for 70cl – which means a shot of it would be worth £71. Distilled drop by drop under the influence of air pressure that is less than half of that found at the summit of Mount Everest, and under conditions much colder than the South Pole, the gin is created using the finest one percent of the gin that under any other conditions would evaporate into the atmosphere. This small percentage of pure spirit is referred to as the “angel’s share”.

Due to the slow nature of the process, it takes Cambridge Distillery roughly 50 distillation cycles in order to make a single bottle. It is then packaged in a unique, spherical bottle from Swiss design company Loris&Livia, hand blown in Cambridgeshire with Swiss-made stupper, and a silver feather motif added to the bottle alongside hand-painted Japanese script.
Keeping all this in mind, no wonder why only 36 bottles are produced each year and only six can be released to any one country.
