Red Cross Army Vodka

Red-Army-Vodka-bottleRed Cross Army Vodka, a vodka brand which comes bottled in a rifle-shaped container, was banned from being sold in the UK by regulatory body the Portman Group in April this year due to its “association with violent and dangerous behaviour”.

The AK-47-shaped bottle was deemed “entirely inappropriate” in its design, which was said to “symbolise terror and violence, and hence has a direct association with violence, aggression and danger”.

Red Cross Vodka was also presented in a gift pack which also featured a grenade-shaped glass and six shot glasses.
