Usually a good gin is tasted with a proper tonic water. This is certainly possible with the juniper schnaps from Ehinger Kraftrad, but Uwe Ehinger has added a very special ingredient: components of a Harley Davidson.
In the bottles of the “Archeologist” – gin actually include rare original engine parts of the iconic bike, gin “1939 Flathead” has parts of the homonymous motorcycle. This applies with the varieties “1947 Knucklehead” and “1962 Panhead”. The latter is the cheapest option at € 900 per bottle.
The price and exclusivity of the noble spirits will probably ensure that the drink is more in showcases than thirsty throats. Each bottle of the limited edition of “The Archaeologist” is unique and comes in tailor-made packaging that resembles the original packaging of the used motorcycle parts.
Wrapped bottles, wrapped by waxed wrapping paper, which tells the story of each part in the bottle. Selected cardboard and colors. Processed with an original Heidelberg printing press from 1931. Hand-stamped and sealed seal as well as the riveted hang tag with the unique serial number of the motorcycle part preserved in the bottle. All parts are specially cleaned and sealed with a tin alloy foodstuff. So everything is absolutely drinkable.
Ehinger Kraftrad, otherwise a developer of design concepts for motorcycles, motorcycle parts and fashion, actually hit the bull with “The Archaeologist”. Currently, all varieties are sold out.
