Mysterious theft: Unknown persons steal an 800-kilo stainless steel ball full of gin from Lake Constance

It sounds like a story with many question marks: a huge ball made of stainless steel has apparently disappeared without a trace in Lake Constance, weighing 800 kilograms and with particularly valuable content: a Swiss company for catering and event management had stored several hundred liters of gin in it.

But why was the gin stored in this way in Lake Constance at all? According to the company, this process should ensure a particularly delicious gin: if it is stored under water for 100 days, it should develop a special aroma. Whether this is really the case cannot be determined objectively. However, the offer attracted so many interested parties that the majority of the 395 bottles were sold in advance.

When the goods were to be fetched from the lake as planned, the experts were taken aback: A floating crane was ready, the divers went into the lake - and found nothing. Another dive, another dive - but the ball with valuable content remained untraceable. According to "Blick", the moment when everyone involved panicked.

Even specially trained police divers could find no trace of the bullet. Now the owners assume it was stolen - and that must have taken a lot of effort. Finally, the ball was additionally secured with concrete slabs: "It is incomprehensible to us that something like this happens and that there are such brazen people who do something like this," said the company.

Most of the bottles for 99 francs each have already been sold in advance. The company is now probably left with the damage of 40,000 francs, and reimbursement by the insurance company is unlikely. A small ray of hope: the company now wants to sell at least the empty bottles to its customers.
