Lt. Gen. Mikhail Kalashnikov, who invented the AK-47 after being shot
by German soldiers during World War II, said Monday he wanted to
continue "the good name" of his gun.

"I've always wanted to improve and expand on the good name of my
weapon by doing good things," he told Reuters Television.

"So we decided to create a vodka under my name. And we wanted that
vodka to be better than anything made, up until now, in both Russia
and England."

Hmm... think I'll stick to the Bordeaux.
