New bag just what the doctor ordered

If you like packing your own drinks while traveling, a collaboration between Barking Irons and Bombay Sapphire may be right up your alley. If you have a spare $495, that is.

The Bombay Sapphire Bar Bag was modeled after antique medical kits from the long-ago age when doctors actually made house calls.

The marriage of design and drink is apropos in that gin once was a popular medicinal spirit as well as a leisure time beverage.

Barking Irons is a New York City company that designs and sells items "dedicated to the telling of American folklore and history through unique fashion products and multimedia design." 

The bag, which has a waxed-leather interior, contains a bar spoon, paring knife, muddler, ice pick, juicer, two different strainers, jigger, shaker and glass.

If you just have to have one, they're available online.
