「一晩で10本飲んだ」北朝鮮のリーダー金正恩はボルドーワイン好き!?

金正恩氏の元専属寿司職人、藤本健治氏は北朝鮮の首相は最近特にボルドーワインを愛飲していると韓国ネットワークKBSに語りました。藤本氏は金正恩氏が、数日前のある夜に、6人の魅力的な女性達と食事をしながら、ボルドー産の高価な赤ワイン10本をわずか一晩で飲んでいたというエピソードを明かしました。藤本氏は、2001年に日本に逃げ戻ってくる前までの13年間金正恩氏の専属シェフをしていたと主張しており、彼は専属シェフ時代のことを書いた本もいくつか執筆しています。金正恩氏の10本のワインを一晩で飲んだという異様な主張は、今年初めの金正恩氏による「二日酔いにならないアルコール飲料」を発明したという発表があるなど、高価な食べ物や飲み物に対する彼のこだわりは十分に立証されています。また、北朝鮮のアルコール輸入量は今年初めに£ 2000万ユーロに昇するなど倍増しており、 2011年に彼の父である金正日の死後からはシャンパンの輸入量も急増しています。

The latest feat attributed to North Korea’s “beloved leader”, Kim Jong-un, is that he once drank 10 bottles of Bordeaux in one night.

As reported in the Independent, Kim’s former sushi chef, Kenji Fujimoto, recently told South Korean network KBS that the North Korean premier has a particular taste for Bordeaux. Fujimoto recalled an evening where Kim dined with six attractive women and drank expensive claret while boasting he had drunk 10 bottles of Bordeaux in one night just days before. Fujimoto claims to have catered for the Kims for 13 years before fleeing back to Japan in 2001. He has since made a career writing books about his previous employers. Although the 10 bottle claim maybe the latest in the long line of outlandish claims made about Kim Jong-un – who earlier this year apparently invented a “hangover-free” alcoholic drink – his taste for expensive food and drink is well documented. Imports of alcohol to the hermit state reportedly doubled to £20 million in the early years Kim’s premiership and imports of Champagne saw an appreciable leap when he came to power following the death of his father Kim Jong-il in 2011. He is said to be a heavy smoker with a penchant for Swiss cheese and his rich diet has been credited with making him so obese that after a long series of visits while wearing Cuban heels he fractured his ankles, as well as giving him gout, high blood pressure and diabetes. Less jovially, he is also said to have signed the death sentence of two officials while drunk and when another official was executed after being caught drinking wine during the official mourning period for Kim Jong-il.
