SOFIA 21. April 2003 | 19:34 A Bulgarian company has begun producing a vodka that contains vitamins C, B1 and B2, honey, milk and other bioactive ingredients. The mixture allegedly minimalizes the possibility of a hangover – and there is interest in the drink from abroad.

Vodka lovers are looking forward to better days. Gone are the foggy mornings and painful headaches that can come with imbibing their favorite drink. This is at least what the Bulgarian manufacturer of the allegedly hangover-free vodka is claiming.

According to the head of Vinprom, the vodka, called “Shock” doesn’t even burn when flowing with full force down the gullet. The drink contains vitamins C, B1, B2, honey, milk and other bioactive incredients that help the body absorb alcohol, and therefore it helps reduce the unwanted side effects of drinking, wrote the Bulgarian newspaper Dněvnik.

This raises the question of whether the new drink even tastes like vodka. The newspaper is tactfully silent on that question. But there is interest from abroad from a certain American company, however.

Sometimes, you just can’t make up stuff like this.
