Anti-ageing gin makes you look younger as you get drunker

A new gin claims to help slow the effects of ageing thanks to the addition of pure collagen during distillation.


You no longer have to mix your cocktails with water from the Fountain of Youth to stay young, if bold claims from a new gin are to be believed.

Named "Anti-aGin", the spirit was produced by UK hotel group Warner Hotels, together with food designers Bompas & Parr, and has apparently been distilled with pure collagen, along with a variety of "anti-ageing botanicals".

"The ingredients were specifically chosen due to their revitalising qualities," Warner Hotels claims, "including healing sun damage, being rich in minerals, inhibiting scar formation and to help smooth cellulite."

While I'm all for having a good night out and feeling younger, as well as hungover, it's important to note that no scientific studies have been done into the effectiveness of the gin as an anti-ageing product. In fact, many studies have shown that alcohol can accelerate the ageing of your skin.

Still, if you're drinking gin anyway, you may as well give it a shot to see if the years fall off. You can pick it up in Warner's UK hotels, or buy it directly from Drink Supermarket around the world.

I'll be doing my own testing to see if the gin works as claimed. For science, of course.
