The expensive alcohol had to be saturated with the smell of mud.
What miracles just don’t happen at Christmas! In Switzerland, for example, the other day, 230 liters of elite gin, which was stored in a huge 800-kilogram metal ball at the bottom of Lake Constance, evaporated without a trace. The police and the owners of the alcohol factory only shrug their shoulders: only David Copperfield could pull off such a trick with disappearance.
The local company Ginial has been making Swiss gin for decades in a special way: in order for the drink to acquire subtle notes of the seabed, it is immersed in mud for 100 days. And it is not to say that precautions were not taken in this case. A metal container was chained to a concrete support. But when the divers descended to the bottom of Lake Constance to collect the “alco-treasure”, then… they found no hiding place there. As a result, they dived for three days in a row, scoured the entire bottom and even found a sunken World War II biplane. That’s just the prized 395 bottles of the prized drink and the trail caught a cold, writes the Swiss Times.
“The professionals have obviously worked here. Without special equipment, it is impossible to steal such a colossus, and even in front of everyone”, only the director of Ginial Cello Fish was able to comment to the Swiss press. You will not envy him: after all, now you have to make up for customer expenses. All of this limited run of gin sold out in advance.
The perpetrators have yet to be caught. However, it is possible that already on the New Year holidays it is not difficult to calculate them for their unsteady gait and the barely perceptible smell of underwater flora from the mouth.
