    CHANDIGARH: In a state whose bacchus lovers have given the world the famous measurement called Patiala Peg, an ecstatic Kolkata team - basking in their win over Punjab team here on Wednesday - broke into a party which was reportedly served drinks, including a 30 ml of a fine 50-year-old scotch costing Rs 40,000.

    The revelers, who included actor Shah Rukh Khan, were exclusively served the scotch called The Last Drop at the team hotel. "This brand which we served is one of the very costly scotch available in the world. Alcohol lovers first produced it in Scotland in the 13th century," said Sunny Chopra, F&B manager at J W Marriott.

    A 750 ml Last Drop bottle comes for Rs 14 lakh and is available only upon request from manufacturers in Scotland. "Only two bottles of this brand were bought in India, one of which travelled to Chandigarh," said Chopra. Rest of the players, including Brett Lee, Brendon Mc Cullum, Jacques Kallis, Manvinder Bisla and Sunil Narine, sank their teeth into wines like Dom Perignon from France to usual spirits like Absolut and Grey Goose.

    The party continued till the wee hours of Thursday and saw 37 liters of alcohol being downed by players from the Kolkata team. Later, players from Punjab team also joined the do along with their team co-owner Preity Zinta.

    Corono Extra, a Mexican beer brand, topped the consumption with 52 pints, followed by Asahi, a Japanese beer brand, at 27 pint and Heinkend with similar pints. The alcohol bill alone for the team was settled at Rs 2,18,802. UB group chairman Vijay Mallya's flagship Kingfisher brand, however, had only a few takers with just 2 pints consumed by the players.

    The actor's bouncers, who usually avoid alcohol, quaffed 43 cans of energy drink Red Bull. With most of the teams choosing to stay at this hotel, officials say that the hotel pub that goes by the name Whisky 111 has now become a favourite haunt for both players and fans. Mallya, also owner of Team Bangalore, has already booked a party at the hotel.
