Sietze Kalkwijk & Gin

Drinking is about so much more than the content of your glass (or bottle), a good cocktail tastes better at a true speak easy than in a cheesy bar, and appealing packaging just resonates better with your sense of quality than any sprawling label ever will. When, at Amsterdam’s Hutspot, I came across the gin & tonic packaging by dutch designer Sietze Kalkwijk, I almost cried I didn’t have room in my luggage to bring it home. Sietze Kalwijk is award-winning for his vl92 gin packaging, and I truly wish more artisanal producers would follow his example. A good drink should appeal to the heart and the mind, as much as the palette.
