10. Vieille Bon Secours Ale


Vieille Bon Secours Ale is an artisanal beer by la Brasserie Caulier, a brewery in Péruwelz, Belgium. At £920, a bottle of 12 littles of the world’s most expensive beer is delivered to the buyer. Since 1995, they have produced several yields, but the one aged 10 years, with 8% alcohol and the flavour of toffee and anise is the most expensive.


9. The Winston Cocktail


When you dole out over £10,000, you expect to at least take home a bottle to show off to people. If you’ve chosen to drink The Winston, all you get is a cocktail – a single mix, concocted by internationally famous bartender Salvatore Calabrese, which is a mix of 60ml of Cognac Croizet 1858 Cuvee Leonie, part Chartreuse Viellissement Exceptionellement Prolongé, part Grand Marnier Quintessence, and just a hint of Angostura Bitters, to create this elegant but over-priced cocktail.


8. Legacy by Angostura


At £19,000, you get a rum mix called Legacy, by Angostura, which is among the most expensive alcoholic drinks, for political reasons: it was crafted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the independence of Tobago and Trinidad. Only 20 rum decanters were ever put up for sale. Composed of a mix of several rums, each of which is aged for at least 17 years, this rum comes in a case crystal decanter designed by Asprey’s, the company in London that designs jewellery for Prince Charles.


7. 1811 Château d’Yquem


Château d’Yquem is a wine producer that has been crafting a multitude of wines since the establishment of its vineyard in 1711 in the Bordeaux region of France. The establishment has survived generations of owners and operators for 300 years. Of its wines which include Château d’Yquem and Ygrec, the batch produced in 1811 is the most prestigious, having received a perfect 100 by wine connoisseur Robert Parker. The rare, vintage white wine costs a whopping £98,000.


6. Penfolds Ampoule


If you are looking to spend money drinking but prefer red wine to white wine, then Penfolds Ampoule is the answer. At £130,000, it is the most expensive red wine in the market, and comes in a glass blown ampoule which holds Penfolds Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 vintage, enough to fill one whole glass. Only 12 of these have ever been put out in the market, and comes with a wooden case which is designed by Andrew Bartlett, a world-famous furniture craftsman.


5. Armand de Brignac Midas


Some of the most expensive alcoholic drinks are noted for their rarity, reason for manufacture, bottles, etc. But the Armand de Brignac Midas is expensive because of the enormous size of the bottle. This champagne comes in a brightly and quirkily painted golden 30 little bottle. This aspect is what adds to the rarity of this bottle, besides the fact that it has to be carried to by several of the staff members. The bottle will set you back by £163,000.


4. Dalmore 62

$250,000 Dalmore Constellation Collection of 21 Rare Whiskies Arrived in the US

Dalmore 62 is the world’s most expensive whiskey, with only 12 bottles of it to ever be produced. Thankfully, unlike many other rare drinks, a single bottle of this beverage contains enough liquor to pour out a number of drinks, and not just a drink or two. At £163,000, it snatched the title of the costliest whiskey, when recently, an anonymous man paid the enormous sum of money for a bottle at Changai airport, Singapore, though how such a rare drink was being sold at an airport is a mystery.


3. Diva Vodka


At £750,000, you can taste a liquor that has touched something expensive, even if it tastes like nail polish. Let’s explain: Diva Vodka is triple filtered, first through ice, then through Nordic birch charcoal, and finally, through sand and precious gems. What is even more special to patrons is its bottle with Swarovski crystals stacked up in the middle of it, and these crystals can be taken out to garnish the drink, thus confirming that some people are ready to spend a for a touch of shiny gems.


2. Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne

A bottle of 100 numbered handcrafted Crystal Liquor Bottles named "Henri IV���Gold & Silver", dipped in Yellow Gold and Sterling Silver, is seen during a presentation in Mexico City February 22, 2008. Each Bottle with an approximate weight of 6 kg (13.23 lbs.) , it is filled with 100 cl. of Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne, aged in barrels for more than 100 years to produce an alcohol content of 41%. Each piece is valued at 9,000 Pounds Sterling ($17,503), Altamirano, the chief executive of the company said. REUTERS/Henry Romero (MEXICO)

Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne is regal in its very name, and has a price of £1,500,000 to match it. This cognac has been aged for 100 years, which is only one of the reasons why this is such a costly liquor, the other reason being its bottle, which is dipped in 24-carat gold and sterling platinum, and is studded with an outrageous 6,500 diamonds. While the age of the cognac is legitimately appreciable, the bottle of the highly-priced liquor is a little too flamboyant to look at.


1. Tequila Ley .925


Crafted in a similar way as Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne, Tequila .925 is a tequila made out of a unique procedure of production, and it also comes in a bottle that is studded with 6,400 diamonds, though we are not sure how the diamonds on the bottle add to the taste of the liquor inside the bottle, which was unveiled before an applauding crowd in Mexico City. But, since no one is known to have bought the drink, at least publically, we can’t vouch for its taste and being priced at £2.6 million, we don’t think we’ll find out soon.
