Multi millionaire John Halewood, 64, nicknamed “Mr Lambrini” after the sparkling wine girlie drink he launched, who was found dead in the swimming pool area of his Cheshire mansion last October, died from the effects of excessive drinking.
Cheshire coroner’s court was told that the entrepreneur – who left a vast £175m fortune accumulated from his self-named global drinks empire had heart problems that were made worse by his drinking habits. Witness statements said he drank a bottle of wine a day.
Almost a non drinker by European standards then.
Mr. Halewood had been warned by his doctor a year before his death that his alcohol intake was “damaging his health”.
Alcohol intake? Obviously it wasn’t his own stuff he was drinking.
