YONKERS, N.Y. -- As a great fan of David Letterman, not to mention Bill Murray, I was ecstatic to watch my friend Bill's final performance on the Letterman show.

Knowing that Bill and Dave are good friends, I knew their last TV appearance would be special. I suggested to Bill that he have a final on-air toast to Dave using our Slovenia vodka, in my opinion the best vodka being made in the world.

When, just a few minutes into the interview, Bill pulled out a bottle and suggested that Dave “Cannonball it,” I was jumping up and down.

While Bill has been a friend and our "Ambassador of Fun" for Slovenia vodka for several years, getting Letterman on the Slovenia vodka fan list was a huge "get," and one I'm eternally grateful for.

What more is there to say after that, but "Cheers!"
