Move aside Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot and Louis XIII, because it turns out that ex-French president Jacques Chirac's favourite tipple was in fact the humble bottle of Corona beer.

Outgoing Courvoisier MD Jean Marc Olivier revealed the ex-president's drink of choice during an interview in London today.

Chirac, we are told, would turn up at official parties and demand Corona instead of Champagne as an aperitif.

"No cocktails, no Champagne, he had a bag with him and out came a bottle of Corona," said Olivier, of a party he attended at which Chirac was present.
