Bikers are a passionate bunch of people that are known to eat, sleep and drink their bike rides. Only now they can do so literally with the help of ‘The Archaeologist’ – an exclusive gin that includes remnants of vintage Harley Davidson parts. Yep, you heard us right! Avid riders and Harley fans can now gulp down nuts, screws, and bolts of their favorite bike for a high!
The person behind the bizarre idea is Uwe Ehinger who is the founder of Ehinger Kraftrad, an internationally renowned manufacturer of custom-made motorbikes in Hamburg, Germany. Being a biker himself, Ehinger in his journey has come across a series of antique bikes, parts of which he has now transformed into a drink! The Archaeologist, as it is called is the world’s first premium dry gin to contain Harley-Davidson engine parts such as 1939 Flathead camshafts from the Mexican desert, 1947 Knucklehead screw-nuts from Chile, and 1962 Panhead rocker arms from South Korea – all sourced from Ehinger’s unique escapades round the world!
All parts used in The Archaeologist Gin are further cleansed and sealed with a tin alloy so it’s safe for them to be soaked in your beverage. They’re then soldered onto a steel structure and encased in a handcrafted bottle before being handed down for sale. The unique and hand stamped bottles of this exclusive Harley gin will cost you over $1000 and is currently available on their web-page.
