Anty Gin – World’s First Gin Made Using Ants

True to its name, ‘Anty Gin’ is literally made from red wood ants. British distiller Will Lowe collects thousands of ants from the jungles of Kent and prepares the particular gin at his lab-style distillery in Cambridge. The bizarre concoction is the world’s first gin to be made from insects, so naturally, this doesn’t come cheap. Each 70cl bottle costs £200 ($313), and possesses the essence of 62 ants.

The idea for Anty Gin came about when Danish company Nordic Food Lab contacted Lowe, who makes custom gins for a living. “We were approached by a company from Copenhagen called Nordic Meals Lab who explore the culinary qualities of insects and claim for the eating of them in traditional western cuisine. They asked us to come up with a gin where the typical citrus flavor came not from lemon or lime peel, but from ants. ” Lowe said.

Disney Really Wants You To Stop Using Selfie Sticks On Its Rides

Disney is cracking down on the use of selfie sticks on rides on the company’s theme parks, with reviews of new signs being put into place at certain attractions in both the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World within Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim.

Here’s one of the new signs at Big Oklahoma city Mountain Rail Road in the Magic Kingdom:

While selfie sticks are allowed in the parks, their use on trips has become an issue in recent years. Social media can be awash in both images of people utilizing the devices on rides, as well as complaints from their fellow riders:

Recording, reports surfaced that Disney had been instructing operators on certain attractions to remind riders to put their selfie sticks. While the organization has never allowed people to stick items outside of rides, the surging recognition of selfie sticks was apparently becoming a safety issue.

This week, however , the company started posting the new signs as “a continuation of our communication efforts at a few key attractions, ” Disney said in an email to the Orlando, florida Sentinel.

An image on Twitter shows a sign being installed outside Big Thunder Hill Railroad at Disneyland over the weekend:

The Sentinel reports that similar indications have been posted at Space Hill in Disneyland.

ThrillGeek reports that Universal Galleries Orlando has gone a step further, setting up metal detectors at three of the very thrilling rides to ensure there are no loose objects at all, including selfie sticks.

The theme parks join a growing number of visitor sites restricting the use of selfie sticks. Some museums, for instance, have banned the selfie-snapping device.
