THE LEGEND

The Colonel was a well known character in the early 20th century. A man of principles, someone who is very strict and punctual when it comes to giving orders, but also in life in general.

Only a few men knew that their colonel was also a bon vivant, someone who appreciates the smaller things in life. Drinking gin was one of the things where the colonel could find peace of mind and truly enjoy the moment. Being a perfectionist, and given that a good gin was hard to come by, the colonel started brewing his own gin. He kept everything secret and never let anyone else try his beverages.

By the end of the colonel’s military service there was an important battlefield. A strict selection of his regiment was invited to the Colonel’s house. Each selected lieutenant got a glass, while the colonel brought out a bottle. He put a golden bullet in it and started pouring out his final – own brewn- gin in everyone’s glass. Whoever got the bullet in his glass had the honour to lead the final strike in the battlefield, and would be the successor of the Colonel.
