Most Expensive Beverages
The number of ultra high net worth individuals and high net worth individuals has risen all around the world. How they live, what they wear and where they choose to go for a vacation is a topic that arouses the curiosity of many people. Billionaires can obviously afford the most expensive shoes, cars and jets, watches and hotels. However, what are the most expensive beverages they enjoy at dinner? It is much more appealing to know.
When it comes to selecting fine drinks, however, the world’s global elites are very picky. All of this has presented exciting new challenges for beverage industry companies. They are always aspired to make drinks available only to the ridiculously wealthy. They put an effort to make rare beverages that are unique in their age, luxurious packaging and quality.
For these reasons the drinks featured in this article are the most expensive on the planet.
1. Billionaire Vodka – $3.7 Million – the most expensive beverage
A “Billionaire” for the billionaires.
The Billionaire Vodka is made and designed to bring satisfaction to those who like to indulge in a luxury and unbeatable-in-price-tag alcoholic beverage. The huge five-litre bottle special spirit costs an astounding $3.7 million with a brand motto of “It’s good to be the king” and is the most expensive alcoholic drink on the planet.
Billionaire Vodka produces the alcoholic drink completely by hand and entirely on demand. Made by the exclusive Russian recipe to guarantee its smoothness, the vodka uses only the finest Russian grown wheat. Plus, there comes distilled crystal clear water (filtered multiple number of times). To make this luxury drink even more suitable for royalty, it is filtered through real diamonds.
And to ensure the exclusivity of this vodka to a greater extent, designer Leon Verres “washed” the actual bottle of this drink with 3,000 diamonds and Swarovski crystals. Being an animal rights activist, Verres did not use real fur on the bottle, but instead white faux fur. The cap is based on the form of Russian fur hats except from being made from faux fur. The bottle comes with white gloves meant to be used while serving the alcohol. The gloves too would have the golden Billionaire vodka logo.
Do all of these reasons justify the price itself or not, can be said by only those few people who can afford at least a sip of this exclusive drink.
2. Tequila Ley .925 – $3.5 Million – 2nd on the list of the most expensive beverages
This high-priced Mexican-made alcoholic drink occupies the second place on our list at a price tag of $3.5 million per bottle. Let’s see why.
First, it’s made from the company’s own Los Altos de Jalisco Plantations, where the best Tequilas in the world are made. This exquisite drink contains over 6,400 different diamonds that are supposed to improve the flavor of the tequila. Made with the best quality agave, the tequila itself is extra aged. Ley Diamante is a Premium Extra Añejo that has been rested in white oak barrels for 7 years and is 42% alcohol.
To give such a unique beverage the luxury and value it deserves, they crafted an artistic bottle of 2.3 kilos of pure platinum and 4100 diamonds. The bottle contains 1.345 liters of Ley .925 tequila and the total weight is close to 18 pounds.
“A jewel enveloping another jewel: the tequila”: as the bottle itself has been defined.
