10. Moët brand manager jailed for theft

Krug

This story comes from February 2012 and reveals that the brand manager for Moët Hennessy Romain Brunot was jailed and fined for stealing £75,000 of Champagne and spirits.

Over a four year period Brunot helped himself to Krug and Belvedere left over from events and even created fake purchase orders, which he would then divert to his collection.
