KLM unveiled a new Delft blauwe huis or Delft Blue miniature Dutch house.

The new huis is a depiction of the first store opened by Douwe Egberts, the Dutch coffee company, which is located in Friesland. The airline will also begin to serve Douwe Egberts coffee on all flights in Europe as well as on intercontinental flights.

Each house, which stands several inches tall, is filled with jenever, otherwise known as Dutch gin, and depicts an actual Dutch house somewhere in the Netherlands.

The miniatures are distributed to business-class passengers shortly before arrival.

KLM has been offering passengers this gift since the 1950s and there are so many that the airline built smartphone apps (iOS and Android) that enable passengers to track which houses they have and see exactly where the house is located in Holland.
