Top 10 most expensive empty bottles

30th June, 2014 by Neal Baker

Prepare to rustle through your recycling bin, as we reveal what the most expensive empty bottles are currently looking to fetch online.

One man's rubbish...

If it hasn’t gone in the bin, it’s had a cheap candle deface its label with wax or incense sticks arranged in it’s neck never to see a flame.

For most of us, these have been the only conceivable fates for empty bottles and cans after they have been emptied of their more precious cargo — until now.

Take a look at these eye-watering empties and see just how much one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure…

  1. I’d dare argue that some of these bottles gets refilled and sold again – fakers have, sadly, also entered this market long ago

  2. I will keep an eye out for these treasures!

  3. I have a gallon bottle of Courvoisier (empty of course!) but it is shaped totally differently – like an old gallon jug, but without the handle. I tried to find out when it was made, or any other etcetera about it, but was unable to do so. Any thoughts – anyone? Incidentally, I payed $125 for it when it was full about ten years ago. It was completely dust covered at that time.

    Any feedback appreciated. I have a few very unique bottles of wine, unopened, and.I’d like to take pics and see if anyone is interested in buying. Is there a platform of some sort that would be best. One bottle is a bottle of Moet White Star Moet & Chandon from France. Thanks,

    Gary
