Costly gin: the limited-edition Morus LXIV will set buyers back an eye-watering £4,000
We hear a lot about record-breaking whisky sales, but it's not that often other spirits get as much notoriety – until now.

A bottle of gin believed to be the “most expensive in the world” has gone on sale – but only 25 bottles are up for grabs.

The “extremely limited” Morus LXIV, is distilled and concocted by luxury gin maker Jam Jar Gin, owned by husband-and-wife Dan and Faye Thwaites.  

Being stocked by luxury retailer Harvey Nichols, the “exquisite rare gin” will set buyers back a whopping £4,000 for a set compromising of 70cl and 3cl hand-made porcelain jars.

It has been distilled from the leaves of a single 100-year-old Mulberry tree – with each leaf hand-harvested and individually dried.

Each batch of the 64% ABV cask strength gin takes two years to produce, with its creators hailing its profile as “smoky, long and deceptively smooth”.

To release the full flavour of the gin, it is recommended served with a drop of water to enhance its "woody sweetness and intense juniper" tone.

Previously, the most expensive gin ever sold was the Cambridge Distillery’s Watenshi, costing £2,000 a bottle.
