Perrier-Jouet Champagne, which usually sells for $1,275 a bottle, has gotten even pricier; they’ve created a new limited edition bubbly for billionaires! They took a bunch of sugar and wines from a special region and jugged it up and will be selling it for an outrageous $6,485 a bottle. The first bottles go on sale after a glamorous launch event at the Opera Garnier in Paris on March 20. “The bubbly is tailor-made through the addition of a liqueur, a combination of sugar and wines from different years,” according to the International Herald Tribune. “Buyers will also be offered an haute cuisine dinner and an overnight stay at Perrier-Jouet’s Belle-Epoque mansion in Epernay, east of Paris, that is home to 200 pieces of original modern art.” Oh well now, doesn’t this just pop your cork? They would prefer you buy a box set of 12 for $78,944. But with the US investment markets tanking, setting aside the box for a few years might be a wise investment.
If you think the cheesecake you had last weekend was expensive, wait until you try the The Fortress Aquamarine. Sold at a restaurant in Sri Lanka, this dessert made the Forbes Travelers list of the world’s most expensive desserts. It consists of an 80 carat aquamarine gem and some chocolate. Supposedly, none of these have been sold. I can’t imagine why. Inspired by another gem-studded treat, the Bombay Sapphire Martini, the dessert consists of an 80-carat aquamarine gem that sits on a sliver of chocolate shaped to look like the resort’s logo. For a mere $14,500 (not including the handmade glass utensils), diners can keep the gemstone after finishing their treat. Since its March introduction, not even a single piece has been sold.
The world’s most expensive cognac which is packaged by jeweler Jose Davalos, is the Henri IV Dudognon Heritage dubbed as the DNA of cognacs. This ultra expensive liquor which has been produced since 1776, is aged in barrels for more than 100 years. The cognac is then bottled in a bejeweled bottle which is dipped in 24 K gold and sterling platinum and decorated with 6,500 brilliant cut diamonds. So I don’t suppose this bottle gets recycled when empty. Anyway, with an alcohol content of 41%, our Henri IV Dudognon Heritage bottle weighs approximately 8 kilograms and it is filled with 100 cl. of the precious liquor. The Henri IV Dudognon Heritage is priced at 1 million sterling pounds or US $1,982,300 per bottle. Cheers.
You haven’t tasted opulence til you’ve sipped on the US $71,011.50 glasses of “Flawless” at London nightclub, Movida. It’s officially the world’s most expensive Christmas cocktail according to the Daily Mail, and it’s being launched today. “Ingredients in the costly cocktail include a large measure of Louis XII cognac, half a bottle of Cristal Rose champagne, some brown sugar, angostura bitters and a few flakes of 24-carat edible gold leaf, according to The Guardian,” the Mail said. “But the real extravagance is an 11-carat white diamond ring - which can be found at the bottom of the glass. “And customers buying the exorbitant cocktail won’t go unnoticed. Two security guards will be on watch as the drink is prepared and watch over the client’s table until the last sip.” No doubt this will be the engagement method of choice for some of London’s most affluent this season! Undeniably memorable, just hopefully not as the night your wife-to-be chocked on a massive diamond. Hopefully the security guys are up to par on their Heimlich.
