You’ve probably heard of the most expensive suits, belts, cars and houses but chances are you’ve never heard of liquors that costs millions of dollars.
Some people want quality in every aspect of their lives including what they drink and if you’re one of those people who doesn’t mind spending millions of dollars on alcoholic drinks, here are five of the most expensive that you probably never knew existed.
Diva Vodka — $1.3 million
The diva range of vodkas is unique in that it is distilled through precious stones, and a regular bottle costs about $3700. If you’re however classy and can stomach spirits that are not packaged in a diamond-encrusted bottle, the British distillery company has the Diva Vodka range for your taste. The company is offering the drink produced with Swarovski crystal and diamonds, which comes with filters in bottle to filter the liquor. Retails at a cool US$1 million. If you can have this drink, you will probably have an expensive hangover the next morning.
Mendis Coconut Brandy — $1.3 million
Produced by an American distillery, the Mendis Coconut Brandy was made from coconut at a swanky New York nightspot in 2007 and later got a seven-figure price tag slammed on the bottle for anyone who missed out on it that year. The brandy makes use of premium Sri Lankan ingredients which are aged for two years in casks made of rare wood. The Mendis company appear to have been more concerned with marketing as opposed to production as they named the brandy “The Million Dollar Bottle”, which is actually true of it.
Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne — $2.7 million
The champagne bottles was designed by Legendary jewellery Jose Davalos and it is identical to the Pricey pasión Azteca tequila with the only difference being the 24-carat gold and the few hundred extra diamonds. The opulent receptacle b weighs in at eight kilograms, and the bottle is filled with a litre of 41% Cognac that has spent about a hundred years in barrels which makes this liquor one for a special occasion.
Pasión Azteca, Platinum Liquor Bottle by Tequila Ley — $4.7 million
The platinum bottle of this alcoholic drink was engraved by Mexican artist Alejandro Gomez Oropeza and also features white gold and more than 6000 diamonds encrusted on the bottle. It contains tequila that has been aged for four years and you may want to go easy with it when you decide to toss it in Margarita. Another cool thing about it is the price which comes in at less than $5 million. That’s a good bargain and you can resist buying something more expensive and snap up a dozen bottles of this tequila. You’d still have a couple of million to spare afterwards.
D’Amalfi Limoncello Supreme — AUD $43.68 million
The D’Amalfi Limoncello Supreme liquor is distilled by the Antica Distelleria Russo in Italy and it is made from the sweetest lemons found off the coast of Italy. The value of this liquor is probably expensive as a result of its obscenely diamond encrusted over-the-top bottle created by British luxury designer Stuart Hughes, who has also been responsible for designing a suit worth a million dollars and a belt worth $250,000 which were both encrusted with diamonds. For this liquor, Hughes reaches for the precious stones, employing three single-cut 13-carat diamonds on the neck of the bottle plus another massive 18.5-carat one. The product was actually commissioned by a customer so the Italian distillery decided to produce one extra, just in case a potential customer is in need of a bottle and has a spare $60 million in his pocket to spare.
