Some designers just have a knack of winning world records through their products over and over again . Designer Fernando Altamirano, who previously dressed the most expensive cognac bottle in the world-Cognac Dudognon Heritage Henri IV, has made yet another record with his newly designed water bottle for $60,000. This is his second Guinness world record for the highest priced bottle sold at an auction. What made it achieve the accolade is water from the springs in France, Fiji and a glacier in Iceland. The icing on the cake is the 5 milligrams of 23k gold dust sprinkled in the water. The Acqua di Cristallo “Tribute a Modigliani is a Modigliani-like sculptured bottle and the $60,000 tag was reserved for its solid gold version.
The bottles are made in Gold, gold matte, silver, silver matte, crystal and a variety of compositions, the regular price being $3,500. But this does not mean that the Acqua di Cristallo is available only to the moneyed. The Acqua di Cristallo bottle is also available in an Ice Blue version for $285. The good thing is fifteen percent of all the sales proceeds will be donated to global warming causes.
