5. Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch – $60,000
One of only twelve bottles produced, the Almore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch is not only one of the most expensive brands of alcohol, but also quite rare. One bottle, which was believed to have been enjoyed between a small group of friends, sold in Surrey, England, for an estimated $60,000.
4. Macallan Single Malt Whiskey – $75,000
Part of the Macallan’s Fine and Rare Collection, the Macallan Single Malt Whiskey has a sticker price of around $38,000, over $3,000 per two-ounce shot. A limited number of bottles were produced as part of the set, with one, aged 60 years, selling in 2005 for $75,000.
3. Ultra Premium Tequila Ley – $255,000
Holding the world record for the most expensive bottle of alcohol, a single bottle of Ultra Premium Tequila Ley sold for $255,000 in Mexico in 2006. While the triple-distilled tequila inside, produced from aged blue agave is quite the luxury treat, it’s the bottle that is perhaps most impressive, featuring platinum and white gold.
2. Diva Vodka – $1 million
Produced in Scotland, Diva Vodka is arguably the most expensive vodka in the world, with a single bottle setting you back a cool $1 million. Not only does the drink come in a diamond-encrusted clear bottle, it is passed through a mixture of diamonds and gemstones during production.
1. Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac
Aged for 100 years, the 82-proof Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac retails for about $2 million per bottle. The high price, which earned a Guinness World Record for most expensive alcohol cognac, includes a 24-karat gold and platinum bottle with 6,500 diamonds.
