Are you tired of eating the worms at the bottom of your tequila? Are your pockets lined with cash? Do you love vintage motorcycles so much that you live, breathe and.. drink them? If you answered yes to all three of these- look no further. A new product has hit the market, and it was made just for you. World-class custom bike builder, Uwe Ehinger, AKA The Archaeologist, has recently released a new line of gin, 'infused' with actual parts from classic Harley Davidson Motorcycles. That's right- each vintage chic bottle comes with a pretty good-sized hunk of old engine floating around in it... the spirit of a Harley in your cup of spirit. We at Dirtbag Clothing think this designer gin is 'totally metal'.. and would love to give it a try. It comes in three revved up varieties:
For your entry level biker dude, the 1962 Panhead- weighing in at about $1060.
For the guy who is serious about drinking motorcycle parts, but is not entirely sold on this marveling concept, the 1947 Knucklehead- available at a cool $1175.
And lastly, the only gift worthy of kings, or maybe just the ruler of your bike club.. the 1939 Flathead- the true premium option at around $1300.
At prices like these, this gin is nothing to shake a camshaft at. A neat relic, as well as attention to detail are the biggest selling points here. Every bottle comes packaged with a fancy paper insert, printed on some 1930's printing press, bearing the stories of the engine parts enclosed.. I don't know about you, but I always like to know the true origins of the engine I'm sippin' on. Lastly, the burning question: is it safe for me to drink steel Harley Davidson components from the mid-twentieth century? A quick dive into the statements from the company says it is. Apparently the parts are specially cleansed and coated with some space-aged food-safe tin alloy... seems legit. The gin can be purchased at The Archaeologist's Website.
