Violent Vodka: A New Trend?

Ever wish you could drink vodka out of a bottle shaped like a gun? No? Well, you should think about it, because we've stumbled across two brands you can set your sites on - Vodka Kalashnikov and Tommy Guns Vodka. We've rounded up the relevant information for you below, and there's part of us that's a little disappointed that neither one is marketed as "the vodka that will blow you away."

Vodka KalashnikovVodka Kalashnikov
80 Proof
This stuff comes in a bottle shaped like an AK-47, the famous Russian machine gun. According to their site, VodkaKalashnikov.com, "Vodka Kalashnikov is based on a select recipe approved by Mikhail T. Kalashnikov, designer of the AK-47 Rifle. It was the first vodka ever to be created by combining salt, sugar, vanillin and glycerin." We're not sure how all those ingredients will affect the taste, but who are we to argue with a guy who invented a machine gun?

Apparently they're not just relying on the cool bottling and name recognition, either...they've won quite a few awards in Russia, which is saying a lot because the Russians take their vodka very seriously. Plus, if you decide to grab a bottle, each one comes with a carrying strap and engraved dog tags.

From Russia to the Roaring '20s, Tommy Guns Vodka is a Polish vodka that comes in a bottle shaped, appropriately enough, like a tommy gun. The folks who make it also make a bunch of other prohibition-themed booze, including Speakeasy Scotch, Bootleg Bourbon, Bathtub Gin and a variety of beers. This stuff is apparently very tasty as well, but it's currently only available in limited areas - though you could probably get your hands on a bottle online.

According to Strange New Products, where we found out about Tommy Guns Vodka, "The gun shaped vodka product actually began selling as early as January of 2005, but only locally in the DeKalb and Sycamore areas of Illinois. Since then it has been selling in 5 states, 6 countries, and all Army and Air Force bases. The company plans to roll it out nationwide by 2008." We can't wait to get our hands on some and pull the trigger! Learn more about Tommy Guns Vodka at TommyGunsVodka.com.
