After a long day at work, it’s always nice to unwind and relax with a glass of your favorite liquor. Whether its spiced rum or a bottle of Peach Schnapps, there are all sorts of bottles on the market that are suitable for all sorts of occasions and for any mood you might be in.
However, after years of mundane drinks, some manufactures thought it would be wise to create an exclusive and extravagant beverage for the upper-class citizens. These bottles are so elaborate that only a small number of people will ever get a chance to take a sip of these special drinks. And I'm not talking bottles of alcohol that cost in the thousands, but rather in the millions!
What makes the drinks on this list so expensive are the highly detailed bottles that holds the special liquid inside. The hand-crafted bottles took some designers several months to even years to complete and many had world-renowned jewelers working by their side to complete the project. That is a lot of commitment for a bottle of liquor that won't be remembered for anything but the contents within for the most affluent of drinkers.
These bottles are more than just drinks; they are a form of art that only some of the richest people can afford to adorn their liquor cabinets with. From bottles as "cheap" as $8,400 to to over $6 million, these are 10 Ridiculously Over-Priced Alcohol Bottles You'll Never Be Able To Buy.
10 Ladoga Imperial Vodka - $8,400 Per Bottle
In 2012, Ladoga Imperial crafted a special collection of high-end Russian vodka. The idea was to package the vodka in a Fabergé-like egg and sell them at $4,000 to $8,400 apiece. Each egg is specially crafted using crystals and 24-karat gold which is used to house a decanter that holds the premium vodka.
9 Diva Vodka - $1.2 Million Per Bottle
The world’s most glamorous vodka is made by Blackwood Distillers and will cost you a mere 1.2 million USD. Specially crafted in Scotland, Diva Vodka is considered one of the world’s most expensive vodkas and is one of the purest vodkas in the market. The three-times distilled drink is first filtered through ice, then a special Nordic birch charcoal and finally precious gems that have been crushed into sand to ensure the vodka has been completely purified.
8 Russo-Baltique - $1.3 Million
Russo-Baltique is known as the world’s most expensive vodka and was created with the intentions of impressing Russian royalty. Costing a mere $1.3 million, the vodka was made in celebration of Russo-Balt’s, one of Russia’s first companies to manufacture cars, 100 year anniversary. The project was funded by Princess Regina Abdurazakova of Kazakhstan, who claims she was looking to invest her father’s money. This bottle was made with 30 centimeter thick bulletproof glass to ensure that none of the precious drink is wasted.
7 Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac - $1.9 Million
Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac is a bottle truly fit for a king. Produced in France and aged for over a hundred years in a barrel, Henri IV is the most expensive bottle of cognac in the world. Sold at roughly $1,900,300 per bottle, this aged liquor has an alcohol volume of 41%. It was designed by the same person that sells the most expensive bottle of tequila, Fernando Altamarino, and created by renowned jeweler Jose Davalos. The creation weighs a total 8 kilograms and much like Diva Vodka, it’s the bottle that makes this concoction truly special.
6 Chambord Royale Deluxe - $2 Million
5 Billionaire Champagne - $2.7 Million
The world’s most expensive bottle of champagne was created by designer Leon Verres and is sold for $2.7 million. The 9 liters of fruity bubbly liquid comes in a bottle covered in hundreds of diamonds and shapka, a Russian brimless fur hat.
4 Pasion Azteca Platinum Tequila - $3.5 Million
Shortly after Fernando Altamarino created the world’s most expensive cognac, he wanted to create an even more expensive bottle. Altamarino was aiming for the world record for most expensive tequila bottle when he crafted the Pasion Azteca Platinum Tequila. Using the same design as Henri IVCognac, he decided to go for the sleek design but only this time it would be much more elaborate. The concept for the bottle took the creator 10 months to establish before needing another four years just to complete the project. The bottle weighs five pounds and is embedded with 328 karats worth of diamonds, a total of 4,000 diamonds that the designer carefully added by hand. It costs $3.5 million per bottle.
3 Billionaire Vodka - $3.7 Million
2 Isabella Islay - A Booze-Free Bottle That Costs $6.2 Million
1 D'Amalfi Limoncello Supreme - $44 Million
Stuart Hughes was contracted by an anonymous buyer to design the world’s most expensive bottle in the world and what he created beats everything on this list. Unlike the rest of these bottles, this drink is not covered in thousands of small-cut diamonds but instead only used four diamonds to adorn the bottle. The neck of the bottle is covered by three single cut 13-carat diamonds and has a single 18.5 carat rare diamond on the center. The drink itself comes from Antica Distillery of Italy and, according to the creator, there is one more available to anyone who can afford it.
