A waitress named Betsy Flanagan found that the wine in the tavern was almost bought, and there was only a little bit of wine left in each bottle, so Betsy Flanagan quickly became wise and took all the leftovers. All were poured into a large container, and he pulled a feather from a big rooster, stirred the wine and served it to the officers.


The officers looked at the color of the wine and felt that it was different from the wine they usually drank, and they couldn't taste the taste of the wine.

The crew who wandered at sea for many days wanted to relax on the shore, so they met together. Drinking at the bar in town. The wine sold by the boy in the bar building is a bit special. He uses tree branches to stir the mixed wine for the crew.


After tasting this special glass of wine, a crew member felt that it was very fragrant and delicious for a long time. It was the best wine he had ever drunk in his life, so he asked the boy what was the name of this wine? The boy thought he was asking about the name of the branch, so he replied "Kraj, Kaj", which means "chicken tail" in Spanish. The shape of the branches resembled the feathers of a rooster, so the boy joked that it was a chicken tail, but the crew mistakenly thought it was "chicken tail wine".
