A bottle of cognac from 1810 is on sale for £148,320


A bottle of cognac made during the era of the renowned Battle of Trafalgar has hit auction headlines for a staggering £148,320 ($231,220). Brandyclassics, a high-end vintage British brandy company, was in possession of the three-quarter gallon bottle for well over a decade and is now selling the Massougnes 1805 cognac.

Considering a bottle of cognac these days is well within a two-figure amount, we’re not entirely surprised that this bottle is rumoured to be the “most expensive bottle of cognac in the world.”

Most probably the buyer would be a luxury hotel brand, who can in turn serve the premium liquor to customers at almost £6,000 ($9,360) a measure.
