4. Tiger Bone

As reported earlier this week in db, tiger bone tonic wine is still available in China, despite the practice being illegal in the country since 1993.

Tiger tonic wines are produced by leaving tiger bones to soak in the wine for varying lengths of time, the bones are then removed before bottling.

The wine, which in China is believed to have medicinal properties, sells for between £65-£500 a bottle depending on how long the tiger bone was in contact with the wine for.
