Queen Releasing Their Own Brand of Vodka
At this point in time the band Queen has done just about anything and everything a band can do. Written countless hits, toured the world, sold millions and millions of albums so the only thing they have left is to release their own brand of booze. Early reports state that the new "Killer Queen" vodka will only be available over in the UK and it's release will coincide with the 40th anniversary of the single with the same name. The Freddie Mercury celebratory drink is 40% alcohol and will be produced by the folks over at Stoli vodka. Killer Queen will hit the shelves tomorrow.
Queen guitarist Brian May talked about the Stoli vodka production plant in Riga, Latvia. He called it "the Willy Wonka chocolate factory for adults."
He also said that Mercury would approve of the drink being named after him. He said: "Freddie loved vodka and used to carry a dry ice cooler full of vodka with him on tour. Killer Queen Vodka is the perfect tribute."
The vodka is described as "well versed in etiquette which is seven times distilled using an ancient original vodka filtration process of quartz sand and birch charcoal with a unique filtration process at the final stage."
