According to an article by Daily Star, when Russian President Vladimir Putin was given a bottle of Whiskey by MMA fighter Conor McGregor, he had it tested for poison before consuming it.
The bottle of whiskey, Proper Twelve, which was McGregor’s own whiskey was given to Putin as a gift when the pair met at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
However, Putin’s security entourage were quick at work as they took the bottle away to check if the bottle carried any poisonous ingredients.
Very first bottle of Proper Twelve was gifted to Putin
According to the article, McGregor said that the very first bottle of his whiskey line was given to Putin, something which many people did not know about.
He also added that he did not have the chance to share a drink with Putin and did not get to see what were Putin’s sentiments about the bottle of whiskey but he was sure that Putin tasted and enjoyed it.
McGregor was in Russia at that time to promote his whiskey and also to announce his comeback to the MMA circle.
He did fight with Khabib during that year in the octagon which he lost.
