For all those seeking a taste of the good life, here is the most decadent Christmas treat ever! After giving us the World’s Most Expensive Christmas Wreath Veryfirstto has roped in pastry chef extraordinaire Martin Chiffers and tied up with Baldwin’s –the eminent numismatic dealers- and BrandyClassics.com to bring you the world’s most precious Christmas pudding. The pudding will be created with the finest organic ingredients – many of them- internationally sourced, however the jewel in its crown is undoubtedly the gold Henry VI Salut d’Or coin which depicts the Angel Gabriel facing the Virgin Mary and bears the Latin cross on the reverse side. Supplied by Baldwin’s – one of the oldest and largest numismatic dealers in the world- this coin alone is worth a cool $12,200. Undoubtedly some of the pudding’s star power also comes from a 200 year old Cognac from Duret which costs about $17,717. The Duret 1810, has its origins in the firm of James Duret and is rendered the more valuable by the fact that it has escaped the Phylloxeera Vastatrix louse which destroyed Cognac vines between 1872 and 1874. Other luxe ingredients include Agawa dates and rare Mamra almonds from Iran, rare spirits like the limited Last Consignment Black Tot Rum, Perez Barquero Solear 1905 Sherry and 1834 Whitaker Marsala. The finished pudding will cost a staggering $38,324.
Finicky eaters can rejoice, the pudding will be created to the specifications of the buyer, taking into account dietary restrictions, allergies, vegetarianism etc. and is said to feed a minimum of 12 people. Additionally the purchaser will receive any remaining alcohols and presentation boxes. Apart from this, also on offer are 10 ultra rare George III 1762 silver threepence coins that will cost about $114 dollars to lend a luxurious flavor to your Christmas pudding – placing a threepence in a Christmas pudding is an age old custom that is said to bring wealth in the New Year.
