Don’t expect to find this 100 cl. of Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagn cognac at your local Ralphs. Henry IV comes in a crystal bottle dipped in 24K yellow gold and sterling platinum and is emblazoned with 6,500 certified brilliant-cut diamonds, all of which are master-crafted by well-known jeweler, Jose Davalos.
After aging for 100 years, the cognac measures in at a smooth 82 proof.
With just 500 fewer diamonds per bottle comes La Ley Del Diamante, a 100% agave (of course) extra aged tequila (three, six, or nine years) from our friendly neighbors in the south.
This tequila is housed glass, hand-blown by thirty-two Mexican craftsmen â€” not your average Tijuana crackpipe blowers. The bottle is then dipped and covered with four kilograms of pure platinum and sterling silver .925 with 6,000 certified brilliant-cut diamonds layed in the precious metal.
Scotland is known for its scotch, but from now on you may remember it for its vodka.
This bottle has a variable price tag that depends on how many precious gems you want to show off inside your bottle. The bottle can be encrusted with diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and just about anything else people in Africa are willing to kill for.
Blackwood Distillers triple distills and ice-filters the spirit which then passes through Chuck Norris’ shit â€” a blend of crushed diamonds and other precious gems.
To avoid listing two tequilas (not that there’s anything wrong with tequila, it’s my drink of choice) we’ll pass the $255,000 – Spluch Tequila purchased by a private collector on July 20, 2006. Though it’s important to note that as a result of the sale, the Tequila Ley .925 company broke the Guinness World Record for the most expensive bottle of liquor sold.
The most expensive wine ever sold is the 1787 Chateau Lafite, originally bought by Thomas Jefferson in France (see his initials on the bottle). Jefferson’s 1787 Chateau Lafite sold in 1985 for $160,000 to a London collector â€” even the finest wines turn to vinegar after a few decades.
According to Guinness World Records, even today this bottle is still the most expensive bottle of wine in the world.
The most expensive drinkable wine ever sold is the Romanee-Conti, whose 1978 vintage earned $24,000 a bottle in New York, 2001.
The extremely rare bottles were distilled in the 1800’s â€” the distillery went out of business in 1908.
The Macallan Fine and Rare Collection, 1926, 60 Years Old sold for $38,000 and marks the end of availability for the oldest and most sought-after Macallan collection.
However, you can taste the premium bottle at the Old Homestead Steakhouse in the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey for a mere $3,300 per dram â€” for those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, a dram is 1/8th of an ounce/shot.
