Louis XIII-infused hotdog launched

30th January, 2012 by Alan Lodge

A hotdog infused with Louis XIII Cognac has gone on sale in Vancouver for CAD$100.

Claiming to be the most expensive hotdog in the world, the foot-long bratwurst is infused with the CAD$2,000-a-bottle luxury spirit from the house of Rémy Martin and also comes with Kobe beef and fresh lobster.

The extravagant treat – called the Dragon Dog – has just been added to the menu at DougieDog Hot Dogs in the Canadian city.

Owner and hotdog designer, Dougie Luv, said a secret picante sauce will tie the “flavours together for 12 inches of culinary decadence.”

Despite costing more than 10 times as much as dougieDog’s other hotdogs, Luv said his creation is a hotdog that any hotdog lover would enjoy.

“In designing this hotdog, I wanted to come up with something super tasty and high-end that stays true to the traditional identity of the hotdog,” he said.

The hotdog’s namesake is two-fold.

“First, the launch of this hotdog coincides with the beginning of Chinese Year of the Dragon,” Luv said. “It also coincides with our appearance on Dragon’s Den, the most popular show on Canadian television.”

The Dragon Dog will be a regular feature on the menu, Luv said, adding that it is the first hotdog in the world to sell for “three figures,” challenging the current Guinness record holder, the “haute dog,” which sells for US$69 at Serendipity restaurant in New York.
