Ski Headed to Cuba

Frankfort, Kentucky – Officials with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture say containers of the soft drink, Ski, will be shipped to Cuba later this month. The soft drink is expected to be the first of many agriculture products to be shipped to Cuba from Kentucky. The shipment is part of a seven million dollar agreement signed last September by Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Billy Ray Smith and Pedro Alvarez, the head of Cuba's food import agency.

Ski which was mentioned in the lyrics of the hit song "Dumas Walker" by the Kentucky Headhunters, is canned Elizabethtown.
