„After visiting my family over Christmas time in the east of Styria, I stopping at a shop that carries a wonderful and delicious selection of food products from Styria. Well and than there was this mysterious, black, wonderfully designed bottle of Gin. The sealing wax on top of the bottle revealed that there is lots of hand craft involved and I was super curious to find out about the makers behind this beautiful product. After reaching out to the makers and talking about logistics, Reinhard answered me that his father could bring up the stock to my parents house, which seemed oddly nice. „Really? Is that not an inconvinience? I let my father know so he can meet your father for the handover.“ I sent him his number etc. etc. but Reinhard replys and says „No need, our fathers know each other very well.“ And as it turns out, our fathers know each other since a long time and maily from working together in the forest. So his father comes over to my parents house and we had a gin and tonic together. And thats how I met Reinhards father.“ Kathrin
