Alchemy found a list of the most expensive alcoholic drinks in the world and are happy to share it with you.
10. Vieille Bon Secours - $1,200 This Belgian ale is the most expensive beer in the world. It has an 8% alcohol content and costs $1,200 for a bottle of 12 liters. Experts say the main difference of this beer is that it has no flavor and taste of alcohol thanks to a unique technology and a complex taste of citrus, toffee, caramel and anise flavors.
9. The Winston Cocktail - $14,000 The most expensive cocktail was created by internationally famous bartender Salvatore Calabrese. It is a mix of Cognac Croizet 1858, Chartreuse Viellissement Exceptionellement Prolongé, Grand Marnier Quintessence and just a hint of Angostura Bitters. The drink is named after British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who was a big fan of cognac.
8. Legacy by Angostura - $25,000 This rum mixture was crafted specifically to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Trinidad and Tobago’s independence. Only 20 bottles priced $25,000 for each were put up for sale. Best professionals spent six years to produce them. They mixed rare spirits of 16 to 60 years old in a 200-liter barrel. Nowadays this rum has very special flavor and taste, and Angostura are very proud of it.
7. Château d’Yquem – $130,000 The 1811 white wine Château d’Yquem is one of very few wines to have been given a perfect 100 by wine critic Robert Parker. He described it as "drinking liquified crème brûlée". This rare vintage wine was produced in the Bordeaux region of France and costs $130,000. Reserves of this wine decrease year after year.
6. Penfolds Ampoule – $170,000 Australian Penfolds 2004 Block 42 is the most expensive red wine. It comes in a stylish glass blown ampoule. It is noteworthy that when the owner decides to sample this wine, they should request for a member of the Penfolds winemaking team to be present. The winemaker will travel to the destination of choice, where the ampoule will be ceremoniously removed from its glass plumb-bob casing and opened using a specially designed, tungsten-tipped, sterling silver scribe-snap.
5. Armand de Brignac Midas – $215,000 Armand de Brignac Midas comes in 15-liter bottles and is considered to be the most expensive champagne in the world. It is produced by the award-winning Champagne Cattier House of Chigny-les-Roses, France. This champagne was purchased just a few times. Like the son of a Russian billionaire who was partying at one of Chicago's nightclubs, where he spotted Zac Efron, dropped a $215,000 on a bottle of Armand de Brignac Midas to impress the actor.
4. Dalmore 62 – $215,000 Only twelve bottles of the luxury scotch Dalmore 62 were produced in 1942. They were made of spirits dated by 1868, 1876, 1926 and 1939. Only one of these bottles was opened when it has been sold to a Chinese businessman for $215,000 in one of the hotels of Surray. Other eleven bottles are kept in private collections and will unlikely be opened by their owners.
3. Diva Vodka – $1,000,000 Scottish company Blackwood Distillers produce Diva Vodka which is triple filtered, first through ice, then through Nordic birch charcoal, and finally, through sand and precious gems. Its self cost is just $24, and it tastes like any other vodka. The real cost comes from the packaging though. There are Swarovski crystals stacked up in the middle of the bottle that can be taken out and used as a garnishment for your drink.
2. Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne – $2,000,000 The Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne has been aged for 100 years and has a bottle dipped in 24-carat gold and sterling platinum that contains 6,500 diamonds. It has been sold in Dubai for two million dollars in 2009.
1. Tequila Ley .925 – $3,500,000 Welcome the absolute champion. Tequila Ley .925 produced in the Mexican state Jalisco. The tequila is made from pure sap of the blue agave plant that has been fermented, distilled and aged for 6 years. Tequila lovers will definitely enjoy its taste, but there is nothing outstanding in it. The secret is the same as with the Henri IV Cognac. This tequila comes in gold and platinum dipped bottle covered with 6,400 diamonds created by the Mexican artist Alejandro Gomez Oropeza.
