The world’s biggest deliberate wine destructions

And finally… a drink-destroying Peacock

The peacock destroyed $500 worth of wine

Ok, so this final act may not have been at the hands of a vengeful human, but it was nonetheless a wanton act of drinks destruction.

In June this year, we recorded the loss of US$500 worth of wine and spirits after a peacock brazenly strutted into a Los Angeles liquor store and refused to leave.

Having made its way through the door of the Royal Oaks Liquor Store in Arcadia, the flightless fowl managed to trash much of the shop’s stock as a 90-minute goose-chase ensued.

Finally, the persistent peacock was ensnared, unharmed, having destroyed $500 worth of wine and spirits, including some expensive Champagne.

Rani Ghanem, a 21-year-old San Bernardino resident whose family owns the store, commented after the incident, “He’s got expensive taste. I’m like, ‘You break, you buy, dude’. But clearly he did not. He got away with it.”
