A Naval base contacted us for their Trafalgar day celebrations and asked if we could carve a full length statue of Lord Horatio Nelson (29 September 1758 – 21 October 1805) or to give him his correct and full title: Vice-Admiral The Right Honourable The Viscount Nelson KB. We jumped at the chance. After much research, we modeled the Vodka Luge on the the Trafalgar Square Nelson perched-up on top of his column.
It is apparently true that Nelson's surgeon, William Beatty recorded Nelson's last moments of life and his last uttered words below decks of the Victory. Nelson turned to Hardy and is recorded as saying, "take care of poor Lady Hamilton", then "Kiss me, Hardy". Hardy knelt and kissed Nelson on the cheek. Nelson died at half past four on the 21st October 1805.
