I’m not sure whether to be offended or amused by this — right after I professed my love for all things Christian, no less. I think the correct answer is (c): All of the above.
That’s right: Kabbalah vodka, made (according to the label) with Christian infants. I could tell you to read MyJewishLearning’s expert article on blood libel, or the greater context of Russian Jewish persecution, but I don’t think either of them would help understanding exactly what this is. This blog post from EnglishRussia.com puts it into perspective — it’s a joke, a new twist on the Russian fad of high-end vodkas. To seal the deal, each bottle contains a unique child statue made of fortified glass. But, with a bottle like that, why would you ever need to empty it?
Thanks Mobius for the tip.
