The week in pictures

Back in London, luxury retailer Harvey Nichols has launched what is thought to be the ‘world’s most expensive gin’ – Morus LXIV – coming in at £4,000 bottle, and distilled from the leaves of a single “ancient” Mulberry tree.

Husband-and-wife team Dan and Faye Thwaites hand harvest the leaves which are then individually hung and air-dried slowly in small batches.

The exact location of the mulberry tree used has not been disclosed, nor its exact age, only that it is, in-fact, “ancient”.
