From the Drinks Business:

A vodka packaged in a gun-shaped bottle alongside a glass grenade has been found in breach of UK alcohol marketing laws for its “inappropriate” association to violence and aggression.

Bartex’s Red Army Vodka gift pack features a gun-shaped bottle of vodka and a glass grenade filled with a Russian herbal liqueur and six shot glasses typically retailing at around £100.

The novelty gift pack sparked a complaint to The Portman Group from The Independent Complaints Panel of the Responsible Retailing Code of Northern Ireland who said its packaging was closely linked with “violent, aggressive, dangerous or anti-social behavior”.



Every party has a pooper that you just want to slap the crap out of. Anyway, I wonder if it’s available here? Not crazy about the name, but I wouldn’t mind a few shots with from it.

BTW, whatever happened to this project?
