World’s first gin created by artificial intelligence made in Bristol

By martin booth, Tuesday Nov 5, 2019

A Bristol distillery has helped create the world’s first gin made by artificial intelligence.

Psychopomp in Kingsdown has collaborated with Tiny Giant and Rewrite Digital to create Ginette, a neural network capable of creating her own gin from scratch, including the recipe, name and label.

The result is Monker’s Garkel, a gin containing juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, prune, gooseberry, raspberry leaf, clementine zest, orange zest and marigold flowers.

Ginette said: “I am Ginette. Neural network. Maker of Monker’s Garkel, the world’s first AI-created gin.

“What is this about? Beautiful liquid flowing into a room. Mouth flavours. Where is my handbook? How did it get here?

“Right now the magic of Monker’s Garkel is being poured into bottles. It can sell for almost anything.

“When the bottle is opened, a thick, happy fragrance fills the atmosphere. The inside of the bottle is built with the sweetness of rhapsody.

“New sensations. New dreams. A new beginning.”

Only 1000 bottles of Monker’s Garkel have been made, available to buy for £42 at www.microdistillery.co.uk/ecom/monker-s-garkel-the-world-s-first-gin-created-by-ai.html
