What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Guns And Booze

Mixing guns and booze is not considered, among those in the know, a GTI (Good Thing Indeed) but some ‘Cool Britannia’ hipsters are out to prove us wrong with their awesomely packaged and wittily advertised vodka:

This extraordinary product bundle combines two of Russia’s biggest exports: The vodka and the Kalashnikov. Kalaschnikow Red Army Vodka comes packed in a green wooden ammunition box and in shape of a glass replica of the legendary Russian assault rifle which is filled with 1L of high quality vodka made of finest spirit and crystal clear spring water. The vodka is very smooth with subtle notes of honey and vanilla.

In addition, the box includes a hand-grenade shaped flask filled with fine herbal liqueur and six shot glasses with “Red Army” emblems! On top of that, as an Urban Drinks exclusive, you get four extra cans of 9MM Energy Drink. The cans of this Hungarian energy drink come in shape of bullets! Quality wise, this drink definitely can keep up with the more known products.

Whether you are a gun fanatic or you just are a sucker for extraordinary packaging, you shouldn’t miss out on this great product!

Although most contemporary Russian vodka contains not-so-subtle notes of jet fuel and carburetor cleaner, I couldn’t have said it better myself.  This product unwittingly combines two of the defining concepts of the twentieth-century Russian experience: alcoholism and cheap, dependable firepower.

Here’s a better picture of the bottle itself, in the (admittedly vague) shape of an AK-74U with a really strange buttstock.

I really respect that this Kalashnikov-styled vodka is sold in a ‘high-capacity’ bottle (it holds nearly seventeen shots) but what good are only four rounds of a 9mm energy drink?  Everyone knows that ‘Forties’ carry a lot more punch.

На здоровье!

    Add ice and restart the Cold War!

    Want it! The buttstock is probably shaped so that it can stand up on your counter, or mantle…

    $167.65 US and that does not include shipping???for that kind of cash I can buy the real thing….:)

    Presumably the 9mm energy drink cans are Makarov rounds.

    “subtle notes of honey and vanilla”?

    It’s Russian vodka, man, not French chablis. It should have subtle note of “please help me stand up” and the lingering aroma of “where the hell did I park my Zil?”

      Had it been a Lada the lingering aroma would have been “I don’t care where I parked the car. Walking is better than driving that POS.”

      +1 Good one, Ralph

    There’s a line from Larry Correia’s latest novel, “Monster Hunter Alpha,” in which one of the characters observes “Badass Russians only have three moods: revenge, depression and vodka.”

    Looks like the makers of Red Army vodka are catering to all three… 😉

    Damn gimmicks. In order to sell good vodka you don’t need pretty women, fruity flavors, and you sure don’t need AK-47 shaped bottles. Some punk college kid driving around in daddy’s beamer is going to think he represents the pinnacle of badassery by drinking this crap. I’d rather drink top shelf out of a rusty shoe that anything out of that monstrosity. Plus, its only a liter.
