The Most Expensive Spirits in the World

This brings a whole new meaning to fine dining. If you like your hard liquor to be real classy then this is just the thing you should be reading. Starting with the world’s most expensive cognac, the Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne that comes at $1,946,617 a crystal bottle dipped in 24K yellow gold and sterling platinum and decorated with 6, 500 certified brilliant-cut diamonds. Inside is 100 cl of cognac that has been aged in barrels for over 100 years and has an alcohol content of 41%. Then there is the world’s most expensive tequila, the La Ley del Diamante (the Diamond Sterling) Tequila, which is priced at $1,547,880. This tequila comes in a bottle of hand-blown glass and is covered with four kilograms of pure platinum and sterling silver .925 and 6,000 brilliant-cut diamonds. The bottle is filled with extra-aged tequila and has an alcohol content of 42%. Then comes the most expensive Vodka, the DIVA Premium Vodka that is priced at $1,060,000. Made with natural spring water and triple-distilled: first ice-filtered, then filtered through Nordic birch charcoal, and finally passed through sand made from crushed diamonds and gems. Each bottle contains a glass center filled with precious or semi-precious jewels, including diamonds. The jewels vary and so does the price, depending upon which jewels you choose.

Then again there is always whiskey (my personal favorite) and some of the most expensive whiskies in the world are Nun’s Island, Galway Distillery, 20-Year-Old Pure Pot Still Whisky and Nun’s Island, Galway Distillery, and 25-Year-Old Pure Pot Still Whisky. They all are priced at around $194,661. And lastly the one and only “Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum”! The Wray and Nephew Rum has been made by the Jamaican distillers Wray and Nephew and bottled in the 1940s using different blends, the oldest of which was about twenty-five-years old, some of the liquid dates back to about 1915. There are only four unopened bottles in the world. This is priced at $50,638.
