This Gin Has Collagen In It To Keep You Looking Young Forever

I know I certainly feel young whenever I down a G&T, but could drinking one actually make us all look younger in the process? If you ask the makers of the new Anti-AGin, that’s a solid ‘yes’…just as long as you’re imbibing their collagen-rich beverage.

We’ve all heard of collagen. It’s what makes our face creams so expensive—all those supposedly collagen-boosting properties that claim to give us the faces of twenty-year-olds when the rest of our bodies are saggy with age. Consuming collagen, though, that’s a fairly new trend. Yes, Kobe Bryant loves his bone broth, but he’s not drinking it to maintain a youthful glow, he’s drinking it so he can keep playing ball.

Enter Anti-AGin, created by food and drink alchemists Bompas & Parr on commission from Warner Leisure Hotels. The gin, created “for those that want to do everything they can to stay young, but don’t want to give up alcohol,” is distilled with drinkable collagen and “age defying botanicals” (including chamomile, tea tree, nettle, witch-hazel, and gotu kola). And, according to the gin’s description on Drink Supermarket, it “actually rejuvenates the skin while you drink.”

Will the Anti-AGin work as promised? Sorry to break it to you, but probably not. According to How Stuff Works, “Unfortunately, collagen has never been proven to have greater cosmetic benefits than other proteins…touting collagen as a skin super food is a bit of a reach.”

But whether or not the anti-aging benefits of Anti-AGin are true, lots of people are drinking to its creation—the gin, which retails for £34.99 ($50), is already sold out online.

That doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a nice martini or three, though. If you’re insisting on paying way too much for gin, why not try distilling it yourself? We’ll drink to that. Even if it does end up giving us stomach cancer.
