Green ants giving Australian gin and goats cheese extra bite. Native green ants are the hero ingredient in a new gin being launched in South Australia next week. The insect-inspired beverage has been created by Adelaide Hills distiller Sacha La Forgia, who won gold for his first commercial gin at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition last year. Despite working with a lot of native plants, he was not initially enthused about using green ants when they were first brought to his attention. The gin is a joint venture with Something Wild, an Adelaide-based company that supplies a range of indigenous food and wild game meat and has a permit to harvest green ants in the Northern Territory.

Culture consists of language, ideas, beliefs, customs, taboos, codes, institutions, tools, techniques, works of art, rituals, ceremonies, and symbols. Every human society has its own particular culture, or sociocultural system. Variation among cultures is attributable to such factors as differing physical habitats and resources; the range of possibilities inherent in areas such as language, ritual, and social organization; and historical phenomena such as the development of links with other cultures. An individual's attitudes, values, ideals, and beliefs are greatly influenced by the culture or cultures in which he or she lives. How does all this relate to ants? With few exceptions, human societies exist in places where ants are a dominant element of our surroundings. We are all aware of ants. Every society has a word of ants.
