There’s a good, cheap local vodka here called “Uncle Tom.” Recently, the brand introduced a premium version called “Uncle Tom No. 9,” which comes in a bottle sincerely copied from the Absolut brand, including the self-praise part in beautiful, italic script.
“This spirit was distilled from Thai rice that has been 6,000 ago and be continuously improved the quality. It is considered the best rice in the world. We were especially prepared Thai rice, pure water and finest distilled. Uncle Tom No. 9 is clarity and smoothness.”
I don’t mean to poke fun, or maybe I do, but isn’t Thailand the cutest thing? The vodka’s pretty good too.
