Chinese Distilleries Under Investigation For Adding Viagra To Their Booze

Apparently, someone in China wants all the men to be horny.

The Guikun Alcohol Plant and the Deshun Alcohol Plant in China are under investigation after police found packets of a Sildenafil — which you may know as Viagra — in their distilleries. Police seized over 5,000 bottles of baijiu (also known as rice wine) after they found out that they have been adding it to their bottles of booze. They are selling it to their customers with the claim that it has “health-preserving qualities.” In their defense, there is some truth in that statement. Some consider a long lasting erection is a sign of good health, right?

The police confiscated over $110,000 worth of goods from the distilleries and the Liuzhou Food and Drug Administration said that the powder was added to three different types baijiu. 

In other news Chinese booze has really gotten up – in sales.

This wasn’t the first time someone in China has attempted to sneak some Viagra to unsuspecting men. Last year, a businessman in Hubei province was arrested when he came up with the bright idea to put Viagra in over 1,000 bottles of alcohol. Apparently, it was an entrepreneurial scheme to “increase liquor sales and make money fast.” This has become some weird variety of putting a roofie in someone’s drink.

So if you are drinking some rice wine and are enjoying it too much, then you probably have one of the spiked bottles of baijiu… or you just really enjoy rice wine.
