Other Expensive Liquors
Even though the Russo-Baltique Vodka is highly expensive, it’s not the most expensive liquor in the world. Here are a few other expensive beverages.
Henri IV Dudognon Heritage – $2 Million Cognac
As the most expensive Cognac in the world, Henri IV Dudognon Heritage comes from jeweler Jose Davalos. It has been in production since 1776 and takes over 100 years to create. The bottle is actually dipped in 24-karat gold and decorated with over 6,500 diamonds.
Mendis Coconut Brandy – $1 Million
As the most expensive Brandy, Mendis provides a coconut flavored beverage, which was first introduced at the 49 Grove lounge in New York City.
Many excellent types of liquor go for a few hundred dollars a shot or a few thousand for a bottle. However, these three exclusive choices all fit into a different category. It’s not just the beverage that makes these so expensive, but also the packaging. Of course, when it takes 100 years to create the beverage, the price tag is sure to be high.
