Shaken Not Stirred PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Shaken Not Stirred free pdf Smirnoff is the leading vodka in the world and sells three times as much as the next brand (Absolut), while growing sales by 10 per cent every year among young drinkers. Yet few people know the fascinating story behind the brand that James Bond made famous when he ordered his first Smirnoff-vodka 'shaken not stirred' Martini. It begins with a serf in Czarist Russia who became the Bill Gates of his time by inventing the product that made his fellow country men trust him. After Communism claimed Russia, the family began afresh in the US with the help of a Brit who invented the American version of the vodka. The brand is now owned by Britain's largest drinks company. Only in 2006 did the Russian heirs relinquish their claims and did Putin set aside his bid for a new Russian vodka monopoly.
