We have all been in this position. We buy a coffee or water and TSA informs us that we have to drink it or toss it before going through security. (Just on the other side of the TSA is often a Starbucks mirroring the one that you just visited and ready to sell you the same exact beverage). Many people gulp down the drinks but most are not stopped with a bottle of Rémy Martin XO Excellence worth £120. A Chinese woman named Zhao was stopped at the Beijing airport told to dump it or drink it. She drank it. She was then pronounced too drunk to board her plane.
Zhao apparently was not willing to toss the bottle (or more likely donate to this evening’s party at the Chinese TSA) so she decided to consume it. She is lucky she survived so much alcohol in such a small time, though it is not known how much she succeeded in drinking. What is reported is that she began “rolling on the ground, shouting” at the departure gate before collapsing.
Reports say that she woke up seven hours later. She will now understand the company slogan: “Remy Martin. Feel More.”
