£85,605 Christmas hamper goes on sale

A Christmas hamper filled with fine wines, spirits and delicacies like foie gras, caviar and Alba truffles has gone on sale for £85,605.

Available via luxury website VeryFirstTo.com, the decadent offering is being billed as the most expensive hamper to have ever gone on sale.

Among the wines in the hamper are a magnum of Dom Pérignon 1961 celebrating the marriage of Charles and Diana; a bottle of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2002 and a bottle of Domaine Blain-Gagnard Le Montrachet 2002.

The official Champagne of Charles and Diana’s wedding, the bottle of DP has a bespoke crest created specifically for the ceremony.

On the spirits front, the hamper includes a bottle of Jules Robin 1789 Cognac, said to be worth £30,000 and a bottle of The Glenlivet 50 Year old worth £17,995.

The Dom Pérignon can be enjoyed in a pair of Versace Champagne flutes that come with the hamper, and the wine uncorked with a mother of pearl bottle opener.

But man cannot live on wine alone, hence the addition of a £6,250 tin of Almas caviar from Iran, known for its golden colour, a tin of goose foie gras with black truffles, 8kg of Joselito “gran reserva” ham and 100g of Alba white truffles.

“This is a truly remarkable hamper that overshadows any that has ever been created,” said Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo.com.

“Not only does it satisfy the most discerning palate, but it is packed with the finest of cuisine provenance,” he added.
