10 weird ingredients that have been used in gin

Truffle

Like ants, truffle has also found favour with multiple distillers. Cambridge Distillery is once again responsible for one of them, having first created a gin specifically for Michelin-starred restaurant, Alimentum, using Lady Grey tea leaves and black truffle.

It then created a trial batch flavoured just with truffle which proved so popular that it made it a regular in its range. It sells the gin for £80 per 70cl.

South African brand KWV have also made a truffle-flavoured gin called Cruxland – made with Kalahari truffles and a blend of 8 botanicals including Rooibos and honeybush.
