- President Roosevelt


T HEN As many of today´s designs, Jerry Cans also origin from a time with limited resources and a necessity to create successful designs. At D-Day in 1944, more than 21 million of Jerry Cans were spread all over Europe. Almost 80 years later the Jerry Can is still in service all over the world, without changes of the original design.

THE DANI S H F U EL W A Y OF G I N What is the closest you can get to being in heaven? A rich aroma and taste of junipers, Danish apples, sea buckthorn, Icelandic angelica seeds, Swedish cloudberries, Greenlandic qajaasat - and the petals from rosehips, which come from the north-western part of Denmark, has given the Danish Fuel Gin a DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL at The Fifty Best Gins in N.Y in 2015. Bottled with Nordisk Gin, Edition Northstar. Crafted and destilled by Nordisk Braenderi in Denmark. www.nordiskbraenderi.dk Nordisk Gin is created by the distiller and founder of Nordisk Braenderi, Anders Bilgram, who has been inspired by his circumpolar travels in open boat. During this expedition around the Arctic Ocean he discovered different and unique botanicals for the gins. A real Gintleman knows what gift to bring to any occasion. Alc. Vol 44.8% and available in 50cl and 10cl bottles. The lids on the tube packaging are made of molded wood like the shelves at the cabinet designs.
