Viral marketing for an upcoming Kevin Costner sequel.

Worth pointing out it’s a Dutch Jenever bottle.

From the town which holds the Dutch National Jenever museum. Which, of course, is interested.

Yes! Almost exactly like the one I found in my yard… although mine has “blankenheym & nolet” on the side.

No message in mine, however. Just a lot of mud. Given the popularity of Gin, and the lack of a recycling programme, they were probably as ubliquitous as those damn plastic water bottles nowadays.
