Top 10 most expensive spirits

27th March, 2014 by Lauren Eads

The spirit category is home to some of the world’s most opulent bottlings with their value rising high into the millions.

Remy Martin Black Pearl Louis XIIIFrom diamond encrusted platinum bottles and 100-year-old Cognacs crafted in honour of royalty, this list of the world’s most expensive spirits is a treasure trove of decadent delights.

True, much of these spirits’ value lies within it luxurious packaging, but for others their value comes from their age and rarity with expressions carefully tended over many years.

Take the 17-year-old aged Legacy Angostura or the Bowmore 1957, carefully aged for 43 years in sherry cask before spending another 11 years in a bourbon cask.

With a new world record set only this year for the world’s most expensive whisky, this list is ever changing proving continued demand for ultra-expensive spirits.
