Black Death = Brennivín :)


(I strongly suggest you read the first link first :))

it became popular because it was cheap to produce and a lot cheaper than
anything else. In Iceland the wholesalers always did take a *huge* portion
of the price of anything, thus becoming the money people in Iceland for the
longest time. So Brennivin was the drink of the common people.

A bottle of such delicatesse can be found in the hands of Michael Madsen in
Kill Bill Vol. 1
