Blog: Chris Brook-CarterWordsmith for hire - has own gun

Chris Brook-Carter | 22 September 2004

As a journalist, the preconception held by many is that I am good with words. Well, allow me to prove that assumption absolutely correct…

The creator of the AK-47 assault rifle has launched Kalashnikov vodka in the UK. Lieutenant General Mikhail Kalashnikov, who invented the AK-47 after being shot by German soldiers during World War II, said 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,” the 84-year-old 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.”

And what has this to do with my wordsmith claim? Check this out for a tagline: “At last – a drink that will blow your brains out.”
