"World's most expensive gin" launches in Harvey Nichols
A £4,000 gin, which its producer claims is “the world’s most expensive” is now exclusively available from Harvey Nichols.
Morus LXIV is a gin which is distilled from the leaves of a single, ancient Mulberry tree (Morus Nigra). The producer said a single batch of this cask-strength (64% abv) gin takes more than two years to produce. Each leaf is hand-harvested and individually dried and then these are balanced with further botanicals, and gently distilled.
The Deluxe edition’s hefty £4,000 price tag is also attributed to the gin’s packaging, which includes hand-made embossed porcelain jars, and a porcelain stirrup cup. This is completed with a leather hide, hand-embossed case.
A 3cl Morus LXIV with porcelain jar, stirrup cup and hide case – presented in a luxury gift box – is priced at £200.
The gin is created from the makers of London Dry Gin, Jam Jar Gin.
