Blog: Chris MercerCourvoisier party poopers

Chris Mercer | 16 July 2010

The tenant of the building that housed Courvoisier's lake of Cognac has got himself into hot water with London authorities over the stunt.

Westminster City Council is after Lord Edward Davenport for illegally hiring out the building he was renting for "hedonistic parties", reports the Daily Telegraph.

It turns out that one of those 'alleged' parties was the Courvoisier event last year, which, allegedly, saw the drinks firm help to install a swimming pool of Courvoisier punch in one of the building's rooms.

just-drinks knows that this happened, because we were there. We could add that Blur band member-turned foodie hippy Alex James was floating on said swimming pool with the help of a giant inflatable orange slice.

Courvoisier is not in trouble over the incident, as far as we know, but it looks like Lord Davenport could have hosted his last party.
