Step Up Your Drink Game - 10 Bottles with a Price Tag You Won't Believe

Updated on February 4, 2016

When you first start drinking - at 21 of course - you are totally happy with a $4 liter of vodka no matter how disgusting it is. As you get a little bit older and more experienced you tend to gravitate to the middle of the shelf. Then you win the lottery and just start looking for ways to spend your money so you start considering purchasing bottles of liquor that cost so much they come with their own comma. These liquors are some of the most expensive in the world; my criteria are: It has to be the liquor, not the bottle that is expensive. There are too many "expensive" liquors on the market that come with crystals inside and a platinum inlay. No wine or champagne; I genuinely feel that a lot of these drinks are expensive simply because people say they should be.


Croizet Cuvee Leonie 1858

There is no shortage of expensive Cognac, but this one takes the cake. The $157,000 cake to be exact. This particular vintage is steeped in history and owning a bottle is more of a status symbol than to actually imbibe. Knowing how clumsy I am I wouldn't even want to be in the same room as this stuff.

Legacy by Angostura

Captain Who? This rum is a mixture of handcrafted spiced rums and was specially concocted to celebrate Barbados independence. At a cool $25,000 a bottle you may want to reconsider mixing it with cola.

Dalmore 62

This is known as the world's most expensive whiskey, and with a recent sale of an unopened bottle reaching over $180,000 that claim is hard to dispute. There were only 12 of Dalmore 62s bottled and one was purchased and drank entirely in a night club in the early 2000s. For the record, that is the price of a house or a super high end sports car that someone ended literally flushing down the toilet.


Russo-Baltique Vodka

Riddle: What do car companies and Vodka have in common? Nothing, unless you are Russo Baltique. This clear liquid in a car grill shaped bottle retails for a staggering $1.3 Million. Wait, there is good news. If you buy one of Russon-Baltique's $1.6 million dollar vehicles they will throw in 3 bottles of the good stuff for free.

Glengoyne 40 Year Old

This humble bottle rings in at an affordable $4,000 which seems like chump change compared to the other liquors on this list. What can you say? If a scotch is good, it is good - we'll leave this one to all those poor wall street guys who can't crack the $1 million mark.


1947 The Macallan Fine & Rare Vintage Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Back to the absurd with this bottle which is currently trending at nearly $34,000. Screw gold, apparently scotch is the real winner when it comes to investing.


The John Walker

I am currently sipping Johnnie Walker while I write this unfortunately, while my heart says The John Walker, my wallet says Red Label. The John Walker was created in 2010 to bring in the new decade and only 333 bottles were ever filled which kind of creates a supply and demand situation. Probably why each bottle sells for around $4,000.

Bruichladdich 40 Year Old

At just over $2,000 this bottle is the steal of the list. Of course it is a scotch and is aged for a long period of time. Then there is the fact that they only bottled 500 bottles, so when you think about it $2,000 isn't a bad deal.


Pure Pot Still Whisky Nun’s Island,Galway

This one is so expensive because the distillery closed down over 100 years ago and there is not an unopened bottle left in the world. Word has it that this is the most delicious whiskey ever made. Word also has it that you and I will never find out considering half drank bottles sell for around $150,000.


Glenavon Special Liqueur Whisky

They say this is the oldest whiskey ever made, but that is kind of like your girlfriend telling you that she is a virgin. You want to believe it but in the back of your mind you know that there had to be at least one whiskey before this one. Either way it is old, 1858 old - a single bottle of the stuff goes for over $20,000 which actually seems about right considering the history that it has seen.
