LONDON (Reuters) - The creator of one of the world's most famous guns, the AK-47 assault rifle, launched another weapon in Britain Monday -- Kalashnikov vodka.

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," 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."

The Kalashnikov rifle has become the weapon of choice for guerrillas and gangsters across the world. But Kalashnikov said his original intentions for the gun were purely patriotic.

"I did not create the gun for international conflicts, I created it to protect the borders of my country," he said.

"It is not my fault that it has been spread all over the world. It is its reliability and its simplicity that have taken it all over the world."

Promoters of Kalashnikov vodka say it is "made from grain harvested in Russia and water drawn from Lake Ladoga north of St Petersburg" and is best drunk with friends.

It's been around for years. I want to get in the bottle that is shaped like an AK-47.

It has been around for awhile but is not cheap. I would love to have one someday.

The last time that I saw someone offering it the price was somewhere around $200. But it does come in the wooden crate that you see in the picture.

Hell, I've tried Harley Davidson cigarettes (they make non filter Camels taste good), Black Death vodka (Nasty, nasty stuff) and that dried fish cured in lye that they eat religiously in Iceland so, shit, I'd give it a go if offered some.
