Hennessey Cognac: $200,000
A bottle of Hennessy Beauté du Siècle Cognac, one of the most expensive bottles of liquor in the world, complete with glasses and case, runs $200,000.
According to the All Most Expensive website
, it carries such a high price tag "because it carries a ten-decades old cognac. It is studded with a Baccarat decanter and was designed specially by a French designer Jean-Michel Othoniel. The wine maker only made 100 of this and if you have a chance to buy it, a Hennessy agent will deliver it in Person."
Millward Brown Optimor notes the Hennessy brand is valued at $4.99 billion and is the most popular cognac brand in China.
