Chef Peter Kelly’s latest project is Slovenia Vodka. A launch for the new vodka will be held next week, but it’s already won a Gold Medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and has been endorsed by two of Kelly’s most famous fans, Bill Murray and Mikhail Baryshnikov. Not bad! I’ll tell you more about the Slovenia Vodka story soon, but for now, enjoy this video starring Murray and Baryshnikov (shot at Restaurant X, looks like!), and check out the vodka’s web site here: SloveniaVodka.com. (There are more videos there, too.)
